If you computer if simply running slow I think you should try a few freeware programs such as CCleaner (stands for crap cleaner) and SpyBot - Search & Destroy.

your best option is to back up all important data, and getting the windows cd that came with your machine, then formating the machine, you put the cd in your cd rom drive, and start up the compy. when it says "press any key to enter setup" press some key, then follow the instructions
