Hello, (anyone??).  The reason I say that is I posted a question here over a month ago and did not receive a single response.  Is anyone out there?  You were really helpful  before, did I say something wrong then?


My problem is this computer is getting very sluggish.  When I click on a site, sometimes nothing happens, I click on it again, still nothing, then on the third attempt it does finally respond.  The little loading thingie starts going around and around, sometimes it's almost spontaneous but other times it takes upwards of 2 to 3 minutes to open the site.  Also, not always but usually, the little round loading thingie will freeze half way through and stop there, this also happens when I am actually on a site and click on something within that site but nothing happens, after several attempts it does respond, then the whole system will freeze.  I can't do anything at that point, I can't go on to other sites, other desktop programs, delete or anything, I then have to click the Ctrl/Alt/Delete, sometimes the Windows Task Manager doesn't even open, I keep clicking on Ctrl/Alt/Delete and eventually WTM does open and I can "end task" from there, but then everything is closed off and I have to start all over again.

Another strange thing is when I click on something I can hear the CPU fan kick in REAL loud, it hums and hums and the system seems to not respond when that happens, but when it goes back to quieter hum then the system responds...sometimes.  This doesn't seem to be just my browser because even my email program has become very sluggish and slow, click on an email, it opens, then I click on another email and nothing happens, the previous email just sits there and it won't change.  I have to close my email program and restart it again.


Can anyone help me, please..this is getting waay too frustrating.
