It could be A number of this but it is most likely do to spyware in which you cannot detect. First though I want to ask A question: Were you trying to load an application when this happened?

There are a number of reasons your computer could be running slowly. The first thought is of course to look at the possibility of viruses or spyware.

Do you have up to date antivirus and antispyware software on your machine? Checking occasionally at an online site is okay, but it is easy to be reinfected and some viruses and spyware will reinstall themselves.

Go to this site to look at posting a Hijack This Log. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

Once we are sure that your computer is clean, if necessary we can look at other possible problems.

Sounds like you either have one too many programs running at the same time (They are likely set to run on windows startup), or you have spyware/malware issues in which posting the hijack log should fix. If your system crashes while trying to run hijack this then try booting in safemode and running it.
