i've done it all,defragged,ccleaner,ad-ware,tune-up 2006 just about everything i can do and my comp is really really slow,for example when i minimize a window it takes like 25 seconds to fully minimize or when im viewing webpages such as right now im on this one and on a football one doin my fantasy football line up.
I'll click the taskbar to switch over to the football page and it will freeze up for a bit,or when i got to maximize a page it opens quickly but all i get is a white screen for like 2 minutes then it returns to normal.Any help would be appreciated.Also i am virus free i just ran one about 30 minutes ago, and i reformatted and re-installed windows not even a month ago.what could be the problem...also i have like 70% free space so its not like my harddrive is used up either.Thanks

Have you considered that maybe your processor is to slow? or that you dont have enough ram? Maybe its time to upgrade.

Do you know how fast your processor is and hwo much ram you have?

Try *manually* cleaning out the Temp, Cookies, and Temporary Internet Files folders.

You may have too many programs running at startup or running in the background. Some of these
programs are not needed to run at startup and disabling them can save resources and improve performance.

Go to Start > Run and type: msconfig
Click "OK" or press "ENTER" and the System Configuration Utility will open.
Go to the Startup Tab, and see what programs are listed.

If you are unsure what any of them are or if they are safe to disable, then search the startup database located here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/

MSCONFIG is a basic startup manager which allows you to enable/disable auto-start programs but it does not allow you to completely remove an entry from the list. To do this you need a startup manager like:

STARTER v5.6.1.45: http://members.lycos.co.uk/codestuff/products_starter.html
Double-click starter.exe to run or extract the zipped version to its own folder.

Autoruns: http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/Autoruns.html

HJT scan? please elaborate

HijackThis [HJT] is an advanced tool that requires advanced knowledge about the Windows Operating System. HJT scans certain areas of your system and then creates a log to help diagnose the presence of undetected malware in known hiding places. It then relies on experts to interpret the log - the areas of the registry that it displays and all running processes in Task Manager at the time the log was created in order to evaluate what to fix. Most of the log entries are needed to run a computer and removing the incorrect ones can damage your system.

If you think you are infected with spyware and need to scan/post a HJT log, then follow the directions here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/
