As my first post I'd like to ask for help regarding my wife's PC. She's using an eMachines EL1330, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, AMD Athlon II 160u processor, Nvidia Geforce 6150SE graphics, 2GB DDR2 Ram and 500GB hard drive. Since its first use it has had many programs installed on it yet never to full capacity so there has always been 'breathing space' so to speak. Our eldest has of late been using it to access a variety of video sites, mainly for software reviews etc. The following, which was viewed on Friday alone is just a small example of kind of stuff he accesses.

Since accessing the above my wife's PC now accesses the internet like a blind man searching for his dropped walking stick in a forest. Suffice to say it can remain stuck for some time 'searching', even when you just type in 'Google'. Can the above sites cause this slowness? We've emptied cache, stopped irrelevant services, ran Spyware Doctor which actually removed a LOT of problems I never knew we had and yet it still is running slow. It was never like this a few weeks ago and worked fine with no problem. I look forward to hearing from you.
