Recently I've experienced some unusual problem with my computer. Basically it's been operating real slowly, and I doubt it could be a virus. What it does is that when I click on a link the computer will freeze and not respond for about 20 seconds and then it's back to normal, it'll do this every few minutes or sometimes less than a minute. It started doing this a few days ago and I'm really getting frustrated.

If anyone could provide some advice or assistance for this particular problem, it'll be greatly appreciated.

could be a hard drive problem, try running a diagnostic on it. i know WD has one called data lifeguard and i assume you can find something similar for other manufactures. also, try running a memtest.

I would try using System Restore to set the computers settings back to a few days before this problem started.

Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore

Once the program opens choose "Restore My Computer to a Previous Date" then choose a date that is a day or two or three before this problem started.

If it is a hard drive problem, this will not help but if it isn't, it might take care of it. I find using System Restore resolves a lot of odd problems that crop up
