LOL.

Okay so my computer is running REAL f*cking slow today...


I don't know what the problem is, and the Norton and Microsoft Antispyware that my computer guy installed on here after last meltdown expired over new years eve!

Spybot didn't turn anything up...


So, my question is, what can I do to lower it? Right now it's going 59, 73, 40, 89... so still pretty big lol


Computer taking AGES to load, and I don't know why...

Check ur startup here

You can download and install AVG antivirus which is free and a very good utility which isnt heavy on system resources. Also Install Adaware and SPybot and run updated scans.
Cleanup by removing programs u dont need, deleting temporary files etc using Disk Cleanup and then defragment the system for all round improvement in speed. Do this regularly.
Add more RAM if u can.
