I'm having some computer issues. About two days ago, my computer started running very slowly (taking about twice as long to open progams, internet explorer, etc.), my mouse now moves with jerky motions instead of one smooth motion, and when i try playing music or watching videos on my computer, they don't play continuously, they stop and skip. i've thought as hard as i can and can't remember doing anything out the ordinary in the past couple of days and i've run a virus scan on my computer and it says that all is well. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

4 Ways to Speed Up Your Computer's Performance

If that doesn't fix your problem, suggest you use the program below.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Hi a likely story,

Could be a few different things.
Let's start by reviewing this Topic; Slow Computer?
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

i tried both but it didn't work
i don't know if this would have anything to do with it but
i've noticed that on the log in screen (where you click which user you want to log in as)
it shows that i have one program running but then when i log in, i have no visible programs running

Did Super Antispyware remove or find anything other than cookies? If not, this is probably not a malware issue. You should post your problem in the appropriate forum for your OS. You should also check the event viewer logs for programs and system. Look for red Xes and click on them to give you more info. In XP you can access the logs thru Start/ Control Panel/ Administrative Tools/ Event Viewer
