Hi,
I'm having trouble with the start-up and general running of my computer. It doesn't take long to load windows, but once the files begin starting up, (popping up onto the toolbar etc.) it slows down alot and responds very slowly for a few minutes. It also runs abnormally slow randomly when running, and there's a big slowdown if I open up multiple programs (Word, Internet Explorer, etc.) at once. I've already been cured of viruses and as far as I know all spyware and adware, so this isn't an urgent problem, but I'd like to get it fixed.
