Windows 7: Sluggish and slow?

Sluggish and slow?

There seems to be a delay with the taskbar at the bottom. Sometimes when I open Firefox or another program the icon won't appear in the taskbar until much later.

This is especially noticeable when starting up the computer. Nothing appears in the taskbar until like 10 minutes after it's booted up.

Welcome
Download memtest86 and test RAM
www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/105647-ram-test-memtest86.html
Run for 8 passes
If passes try a good stick in each slot for 3 passes
If fails do the same for 8 passes.

Check for errors in event viewer
Bring up task manager, how much memory is used? How much available and free?

Go to search and type event viewer, when the problem happens, and look for errors from the adiminisrative panel on the left.
