Hard shutdowns are bad, bad, bad!
Just like power outages or pulling the plug.
They can corrupt files - system files, the registry, etc.
You need to fix the system so that hard shutdowns are never necessary.
Standby also. I would set the system never to go to standby or hibernate. Causes all kinds of problems.
Replace the batteries in the keyboard and mouse. See if that helps.
How old is the computer? If more than a couple of years, the CMOS battery may need to be replaced (time loss).
How much RAM does the system have? Do you notice if the system slowness happens when using graphics intensive aps? Or after just booting up? Do you have a seperate graphics card with its own ram or does it share system ram?
Does it happen when your AV program is scanning? (listen for the hard drive ticking)
