I hope someone can assist me with this problem. Two days ago my computer began slowing down,especially on start up. I performed all the cures that I am aware of like: disk cleanup, defrag, updated and ran antivirus and and adware programs. I checked all startup programs in msconfig and services to no avail. Then I attempted to restore to a previous date but, alas there were no restore points available. I checked system restore settings to make sure that it was not checked (to eliminate restore points) and have plenty of storage space and ram. I tried last known good configuration in bios but computer is still slow. It is a gateway laptop with 120gig hard drive and 2gigs of ram. Can anyone help?

Disk cleanup removes restore points. You may also have the system restore service off.
