computer so slow

I have windows 7 and have run spybot, ccleaner and they all come out clear of virusus. I have no add ons, except PDF viewer What could be going on. Sometimes when trying to bring up an email it says "loading" and will never come up.
Other times it will show about 10 emails and then several seconds later the rest will pop up.
It just doesn't seem real clean. Any SIMPLE ideas that a novice could do to improve this?

I think I said something "simple". I wouldn't have a clue how to do that and would be scared I would really do something to screw it up worse.

Do you have a real anitvirus program? If not download Avast its free and reliable.

First, Ccleaner isn't an anti-malware program. Its just a junk file cleaner.

Coming to your problem now,
1. Check Start-up programs. Remove any unnecessary ones. (Type 'msconfig' in start menu search, w/o the quotes.)
2. Use any Antivirus to scan your pc. After that use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and do full scan.
3. Report the results here.

There was no malware found - everything was clean.
In my startup folder the following were checked: Quicktime, realplayer, software mgr, adobe systems - adobe gamma loader, install shield

It'd be nice if you can give MBAM a try too.

You mean run MBAM? That is that Malwarebytes anti malware? I did run it and it said 0 problems. I wanted to cut and paste it to you but it wouldn't let me paste!!
