Hello, I have two notebooks.  The Fujitsu Lifebook running Japanese Windows 7 recently started becoming very slow.  Now it is so slow that it takes 45 minutes to boot up!  Might it be a virus?

Thank you for the advice.  Just opening a window takes over 5 minutes sometimes.  I'm afraid that to run these 3 programs would take over 24 hours.  I'll do my best, but wonder if I should reformat instead.
