Laptop is suddenly VERY slow, not sure what the problem is.

No new programs installed, ran anti-malware and anti-virus (found nothing). Ran scandisk and also defragged.

Dell Latitude D420
Windows XP Pro SP3
Core 2 Duo U2500

I would check for overheating, myself.

Had an overheating problem 2 years ago which required a mobo fan replacement. SpeedFan shows the CPU at 66 degrees. A bit warm, but not outside of the realm of normalcy for a laptop of this ilk, I think. Let me know if you disagree.

Yup, did all of that, nothing helped.

I don't know much about laptops...

66 degrees Celsius?

Take a look, http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/syst...24en1/specs.htm

95 Fahrenheit is 35 Celsius...

Ah, right - Celsius! Damn, I can't believe I need to replace the fan again.

CPU at 66 degrees is nothing extraordinary, that's not the problem.
Temperatures listed on the Dell site refer to battery, AC adapter and environment

You are right, it appears that Tjunction for that processor is 100 degrees Celsius.
