The system is pretty slow. It boots alright but programs and applications take time to open. If I give two simple commands, it goes to not responding mode but does recover in a minute. The system is about 2 and half years old.
Hard Drive and memory checked for errors. It all seems alright.
Configured the Startup menu to prevent unwanted programs from opening.
Anti virus in place and functional
Formatted windows once before. (4 months back). It did help initially but now its as slow as it was.
