Slowing down.

Just lately it's been getting pretty damn slow, had it installed for maybe a month, still using 7068. 70gb HDD free so its not a space issue, defrags run daily as with virus scans. Firefox gets laggy when scrolling down websites and boot times have gone to crap. Anyone know what I can do to fix it up a bit?

Have you used the task manager to view processes? Better yet install something like Process Monitor for a comprehensive view of what's eating memory and CPU cycles. Regarding slow boot, you may have programs autostarting that you don't need. And what apps are you using for security?

Hopefully this is the correct forum for this. Apologies in advance if not. 1. My PC has started to slow down (Dell Laptop Inspiron 1720, 2G RAM, Wini 7 Professional). This is odd because it has been pretty quick until this week and all of a sudden it's sluggish. Any ideas? 2. Ad-Aware...
