I've got an Acer Aspire 5520 laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium, SP2. Processor is AMD Turion 64 X2, 1.9 GHz. Running 3 GB Ram, 32 bit operating system. Video card is GeForce 7000M.
On some websites, particularly Facebook and others with embedded video, including YouTube, the computer bogs down and the fan starts to speed up. This thing is terribly slow. I've cleaned the cooling fan, followed the 'slow computer' tutorial here on this site, and have pretty much covered all of the bases with cleaning up unwanted programs and programs running at startup. I always use CCleaner to keep temp files to a minimum.
I used the Windows System File Checker tool and had the following message:

I'm not sure if this is related to my problem or not. I'm wondering if it even a video card related problem. This has been a good system for me over the years, and I have done my best to keep is clean of viruses and malware, following many tutorials here on a regular basis.
Any help is appreciated!
