I scanned for virus', did the Windows Disk Cleanup, ran Chkdsk and its a little better. The wait for links remains the same.
I have a Webroot Spyware Sweep and Norton 360. The Norton 360 will not start up in the bottom tray, and when I double click it I get a quinck hour glass and then nothing. I also get a Email Attachments Shield Communications Error on the Webroot Sweeper. I don't know if these are related to the slow performance or not. I have removed some Trojan items using Malwarebyte's and some others with SUPER Antispyware, so I was also wondering if there is something left behind from those two items. They were updated and I ran quick and full scans with both (but i didn't save the logs)

I SAS program is a free program someone suggested I download for help find a problem I once had, I used it, it worked and I kept it on the PC, just in case so i wouldn't have to download it. It loads in the system tray,but as far as i know it doens't really monitor anything. But I have no [roblem deleting it, since it was the freebie.
Webroot however I am invested into a contact, it's my spyware sweeper, and the Norton 360 looks for everything but spyware. That was sugggested to me by Dell. They felt I needed 2 separate programs. I prolly got hosed.

When I deleted the Malware and SAS programs, they left behind folders (containing the logs of the Trojans that were removed no doubt) and I deleted them. Sorry.
