First of all download cCleaner,leave it on default settings and run the cleaner programme and not the registry cleaner.Next download Malwarebytes Anti Malware.Slow downs are often due to infections.Once downloaded update program and run quick scan you can either delete or quarantine what it finds.Finally download Auslogics Defragment tool to defragment Your Disk.A badly defragmented disk can also slow you down.Get these free items here.

yes i hav cCleaner, and i dont use the reg part of it, i have had malwarebytes for a while now, almosta year. and that has helped alot. i run scans atl east once a week, but most the time its more than that. "Finally download Auslogics Defragment tool to defragment Your Disk.A badly defragmented disk can also slow you down." i will try that, i havent heard about it, but ive been thinking about defraging my computer, but the defrager that comes with my laptop says that my computer dont need it, and it wont let me. i was going to use the defrager that i have on my flashdrive tonight, but ill try that one instead =)

thanks, and if there are any other ways i am open to suggestions.

i have this thing on my computer called "microsoft groove" or something like that, i dont know what it is and i would like to make that stop starting up with my computer, it came with microsoft office7

(oh and if you go to malwarebytes.org, and you try to download malwarebytes it will not work, i think they got hacked because it goes to a website ive never seen before, and its about buying stuff, and it dont tlak about malwarebytes at all)
