    used virus/spyware checks?

    had a look in task manager (ctrl+alt+del) to see any possible resource hogs?

    i checked the taskmanager and the only thing that has a very high number in the cpu usage is the System idle process, i have Norton anti-virus on and have been getting numerous trojan checkers, any clues?

    there could be probs with drivers or registry. Also try defragmenting the drive, because when you install/uninstall, copy/delete files a lot it fragments files and so system becomes slower.

    is your hard disk getting full?
    when was the last time you defragged your PC?

    EDIT oh 10 gigs free, well that should be enough free to defrag :-)

    So, have you checked for updated drivers then?
    Maybe your busmaster drivers are corrupted.
    if your font size is this small i'll add you to my ignore list because you're wasting my time, OK?

    that number is the % of your cpu thats not doing anything. mine is usually at 98% unless i do video encoding or play games.

    You need to be more specific about when it becomes slow i.e. is it when you run a particular application or from start up?

    have given you some really good suggestions
    the more information you give us...the better we understand what
    the problem could be.
    example if it is a software problem:
    try running Norton anti-virus and quarantine suspected files
    if when you run defrag, it is still really slow
    try running ad-aware and then spybot search and destroy
    then try a program like diskeeper 7.0 and window washer 5

    example if it is a hardware problem:
    check your virtual memory settings/allowcations in the control panel
    check the resolution on the graphic card, that it is not taking resources
    from ram.
    check if you have a really big hd(120 to 250 gigs), you will see performance slow
    when you fall below 20 gigs.

    it is the small things that usually drive us mad
