I have tried everything I know to do, and I am at a loss. My computer is suddenly SLOW in all browsers (Firefox, Chrome, IE), and all native applications (Photoshop, CorelDraw, etc). 



I uninstalled Real Player (seemed to start right after I installed Real Player)


I have a Windows 7 home premium computer, HP Pavilion p6120f Desktop PC, Motherboard Manufacturer: Asus, Motherboard Name: IPIBL-LB, HP/Compaq motherboard name: Benicia-GL8E, pc2-6400 ddr2 sdram 2gb • CL=6 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-800 • 1.8V • 256Meg x 64, 16g ram, etc.


It suddenly slowed down in the last week or so. My husband just got rid of RocketTab, and we are on the same network, but I don't have that same program. He's now running at speed. 
I have run: Internet speed test, Malwarebytes (found nothing), Spybot (found nothing), my native antivirus McAfee (found nothing), tdsskiller (found nothing). I ran a check of my hardware, which found no issues. My hard drive is only about 30% full. I have uninstalled and reinstalled McAfee, I tried removing all temp files, etc, etc.
I am a power user, but not an expert.
I am at a loss, other than reloading Windows from scratch, which is too painful, or taking it to BestBuy, which is too expensive. Can someone help?
I would appreciate it!

If you haven't already, check your "Task Manager" with the "Processes" tab.  You can sort by Memory and see if anything particular is sucking memory from your computer.
