Windows 7: Win 7 has monthly slow down

Win 7 has monthly slow down

For the past few months at about this time my Win 7 Home Premium bogs down and is hardly responsive for any of the routine functions such as browsing or e-mails. I haven't paid close attention in the past when this has happened but this time it followed a re-start about 36 hours ago and continues now. I can hear the system clicking and grinding away at something but for the life of me I don't know what it's doing other than making the PC unusable. I have a similarly equipped laptop (using it now) and have had no similar problems. NE1 have an idea of what this is about and a potential cure. If I just let it click and grind away for about three days it will return to its speedy service. Help appreciated.

How can I have more than two events show up in my monthly calendar?
My events only show up in the top half of the day in the monthly view so I can only get two events to show. The arrow points to more messages but it seems like I should be able to fit three events at least.
