The access denied is probably because you were not logged on with administrator rights.

Running more slowly is a different issue. Were other programs running?

Go into task manager and select the processes tab and sort by mem usage to see what processes might be slowing things down.

If there are many unfamiliar processes then you may want to try using the HijackThis log and posting the results. For information on this go to http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/.

Normally the reason that this happens is because you're infected.

Try some of these free online scans (at least 2 or 3 of them to ensure that you've gotten everything):

What is your AV? You could download the update to disk and update from disk.
