It doesn't appear that I have any spyware and viruses but whenever I click on a program it takes forever to load up..it could be from a minute to a couple minutes and then it will finally open up. I've done some defragments, that doesn't even seem to do anything so help me out!!

I would get a free program like everest home edition and check these 2 items: What programs are in the start menu that I don't need all the time? Disable the ones not needed. Then look at memory, and in particular free physical memory. You may need more RAM, or delete some programs.
Spike's advice: Backup your data routinely.

Some information about your system would help too.

Soltek QBIC, Pentium 4 3.0GHz, 512MB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, ATI Radeon 9600XT 256MB, Netgear 54Mb/s WAP, ridiculously expensive Satellite Broadband
Windows XP Home SP2, Trend Micro Internet Security, Firefox, Thunderbird, AdAwareSE, Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster, A-squared Free, Ewido Security Suite.

a disk clean
disk defrag
virus scan
spyware scan
delete history
delete cookies
delete temp files
all from internet options
download/install regclean 4.0 and using start tab,remove from start up,those apps not needed [will ONLY remove from starting with windows,NOT hard drive]
download regseeker and delete bad registry keys [this is user friendly and will not harm your registry]

if you're using I.E. as web browser,download/install Firefox

if you MUST use I.E.,download and install ieadspy and spysites to load spysites into your I.E. restricted zone

see antisdpyware site for these

hope this is helpful
