I have a Toshiba, that I purchased about a year ago. It started to become slow during start-up and it takes awhile to open different websites. I have Norton and I've used it to tune-up my computer or clean-it up but I'm not sure what else to do. I am not computer savvy and many people have suggested "clearing cookies", "cleaning up hard-drive", and "stopping start up programs", but since I am too afraid to mess things up more, I haven't done anything but what Norton offers. Any help would be great. Thanks
