Hello. For about a month my laptop has been running a lot slower than normal. I would just like to know what I could do to speed it up.

It is a Dell Latitude D820
Intel Core2 CPU T7200 @ 2.00GHz
2.00 GHz, 2.00 GB of RAM

Basically if I am trying to do anything (browse the internet, play music, im people) my laptop just kind of stops for a little bit to think. When I use firefox and try changing tabs it stops and i get a white window thing instead of the firefox logo in the top left corner. When I try to open something on here it takes forever, the zune player is the worst then it would be pdf files. I've tried to defrag my computer but that doesn't help at all. Any ideas??

Thanks

Sounds like you could have a virus/spyware problem. Try posting this in the Malware Removal forum and see if someone there can help you.

good luck

I did about a week and a half ago. And everything got cleared up.
