Windows 7: Computer seems sluggish, where to start?

Computer seems sluggish, where to start?

While reading some of the tutorials, I would see a reference to areas of PC that I wasn't aware of so would go take a look at mine & found one that looks suspicious. I don't know what if anything to do about it. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
grits

Hi grits run DDS

download

Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
Place a check next to attact.txt and click Start . When done, DDS will open two logs
DDS.txt
Attach.txt
Save two logs onto your desktop and upload them with your reply

Did you try to Defrag ?

So I gather the DDS didn't show anything? And what connection is there between that Event Viewer log & DDS?

As usual, when I opened defrag & run analyze, it said (what ever it says) not needed.

oops, damn, went to the 'Optimize' link & ended up losing my green desktop color that I posted about a week ago!! Now I'm back to square one with that. Now my DT color is black. I kept messing with "Let Windows choose, Best Performance, Best Appearence" & now am completely lost again. I think my biggest problem is that there's an idiot sitting here typing!!! I should have never been allowed to buy a computer.
