hello

how much Ram is on this machine? you could run ccleaner (stay away from the registry cleaning part of it) http://www.ccleaner.com/
have you defragged lately? http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/disk-defrag/

If you need more ram you could try readyboost to see if that would help... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/using-windows-readyboost-to-increase-performance/

here is a video on how to add ram...

good luck

internet explorer can take 15 minutes just to open,

well thats a huge problem
what i would do first is:
start>run>msconfig> and then turn off must stuff u dont need in start up and services (you can write them down if some thing goes wrong) press ok and restart

also see how much room you have on the hard disk

edit what anti virus/anti spyware u got ?

I have 80gb of RAM and 24.5gb free, I use avg free viruscanner, malwarebytes and i've defragged and run trendmicro which found no threats. However I can't seem to download cc cleaner. Its not just start up that takes ages - everything is very very slow!

hello
It sounds like you do have something on your system that shouldn't be there...see if you are able to do a free online scan. you have to download (something for the scanner to work).. If it lets you download it run the scan please.. http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ this is one of many, it's just the 1st one I ran accross.
Did this slow down happen all at once?

again how much ram is installed?
start > right click on "computer" choose properties, it will show how much RAM 1GB,2GB,3GB (not 80gb)

good luck
Have A Great Day

You never told us how much RAM you have.

Instead of CCleaner, you can...

Download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Unselect Cookies.
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox browser
Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Unselect Cookies.
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Opera browser
Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Unselect Cookies.
Click the Empty Selected button.

Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

Then....

Download Autoruns for Windows: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx

hello,
this is what i did to my vista to make it fast,secure and stable
first enable dep for all files
dep is data execution prevention
please read my previous posts about dep
in order to do that go to control panel,type advanced system settings in search box,
click on advanced and enable dep for all files
next
download from pcdecrapifier.com corresponding software and let it clean all unnecessary stuff
then,
download advanced system care from iobit.com
run it daily
next,
download startuplite from malwarebytes.com and folow reccomendations
download from sophos.com antirootkit and run it weekly
download vista services optimizer from smart pc utilities and
use automatic optimization
if you didnt download aft by atribune and run it daily
finally
when on internet NEVER EVER accept offers for your pc problems
If you give a fish to a hungry man,you have feed him for one day.If you teach a man how to fish,you have feed him for the whole life!

download advanced system care from iobit.com

ASC deals (partially) with registry, so it shouldn't be recommended.

download vista services optimizer from smart pc utilities

Services are better to be left alone, as well.

i can say that you are wrong but im not like you

So,lets give iobit benefit of a doubt
Until proven guilty
