you can press ctrl alt del to get the task manager, and go to processes and see which is taking up the most memory or cpu use.

Hi rackem -
Go to Accessories > System Tools > Defragmenter and click on analyse - How much free space is listed and how much is showing Red areas -
Next go to Control Panel > Add Remove and see if there are several older items you no longer use and delete them or move to CD storage -
Run DiskCheck with this following code - Enter/copy and paste the code into Run Box, close all open programs (including the internet) and press OK or enter - Your system will reboot in 30 seconds and run a 5 stage check/repair - This should take 30 to 45 mins - Do not try to stop the check once started -
See how much free space you have now -

Thank You -
EDITED to alter Code -
