I used this forum a few years ago for another problem an the guy that helped me was amazingly helpful.

My computer is relatively new. It's a little over a year old Dell Vostro with Windows 7. Lately it's gotten extremely slow, restarts randomly and basically doesn't act the way it should. I've done the virus scan (I have Trend Micro). Everything looks alright but the computer is still a bit of a mess. Any advice/ideas?

Thank you so much for your help. Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated.

Hi charles ruff..

Check event viewer and see what errors you are getting

How To Use the Event Viewer Applet

You may also have malware/virus that is causing the slowdown and reboots...I would recommend posting in the malware forum here and having it checked.
