Windows 7: Very Slow Windows 7 Intel i5 computer

Windows 7 Ult. x64


Welcome. There are lots of suggestions to help you, some of them aren't relevent at all until you start at the top, and for that I highly recommend Greg's suggestions above - this should be your first port of call. Check his post #18 in the link he posted.

For now, I recommend ignoring subjective comments about whether 2 anti-virus products are good or bad, checking RAM etc. etc. These are peripheral to your main problem : the bloated nature of your system. Get that sorted first, and the rest can be dealt with as needed.
