How do I make sure I don't have unwanted programs running in the background or without my being able to see them? I think that is what is slowing up my computer, also how can I speed up my computer?

You currently have an open topic in the Am I Infected forum...which seems to deal with current suspected issues with your system.  See http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/498820/videos-and-stuff-running-in-the-background/ .  That topic is the one on which you should focus your energies.


Until the AII topic is resolved, we request that you not initiate any other topics about your system problems, as the responses to such are likely to confuse the issues involved and may confict with good advice concerning suspected malware. 


To prevent confusion, this topic is now closed.
