Okay, so i got a dell desktop about 1 month ago.. i dont use it much only for web stuff. its very slow.. i had to fix a fake program that got download on my computer.. so i got rid of that following instructions i found on another site.. i run some performance scan clean up the hard drive. but its still slow and this computer should be fast since it is new and i dont mean like blazing fast i mean like normal fast. Example- open ie8 and it says not responding for about 30 secs or so then it stops and then it goes not responding then it goes to normal.. anyone have any tips? what do i do? im very frustrated.

Try running chkdsk and defragging...and run a series of checks for malware.
