Windows is very slow, often unresponsive, and will not update

hi everyone,

Ok, I turned on my computer last week after it working fine and it all the sudden became very slow and unresponsive to the point of no use. So i reinstalled windows using the recovery partition. After reinstalling windows my computer is still very slow, often becomes unresponsive, windows updates will not download or take absolutely a lifetime to download. I am at a point where i do not know what to do. It is mid semester in school and this computer is important. Any help what so ever would be great. Thanks everyone

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

What does Task Manager say? Are there any processes using up 90-100% of CPU e.g. an Antivirus product or possibly a malware infection. What is is the specification of the PC? Also, I would check that the ADSL Modem/Router is working ok, try accessing the device via its web interface to see that its working ok.
