Clear your cache in firefox/IE,

Im assuming you're using Windoze
go to Start > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup
and Start > Accessories > System Tools > Defrag (takes forever - do it overnight)

Finally, download Spybot Search & Destroy. It'll find all the damn spyware and adware on your computer that's probably bogging it down.

That'll clean up your computer, but you might wanna consider upping your RAM if it's still sluggish.

hope it helps
peeaacee

Format your hard drive.  Problem solved.

PS:  Don't forget to reinstall your OS. :thumbup:

From the sound of D4NK's reply, I'd say he has dealt with the Geek Squad before.

QFT

Disk cleanup can also take a while, depending on how big your harddrive is, and if you're dealing with compressed old files. If that doesn't solve your problem, please let us know what your system specs are. It could just be you have a stone age processor.

Definitely could be spyware and adware. Get something like spyware doctor. Also, if you don't have an antivirus make sure you get one. When was the last time you defragmented your system?
