Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Check you antivirus and make sure all the patches are updates, figure out what resources are most used when you system is connected to internet and kill them if they are irrelevant.

Cheers

    Is it IE slow or Windows programs. What drastically slows a system down is when it runs out of free RAM completely and has to use the page file all the time, then it gets into thrashing. If there are alot of things running in your task tray. I would close all of them down and see if it is faster because if your commit charge is higher than your RAM it may result in a big performance drop. Check the task list performance and processes that are using up RAM with ctrl, alt, delete, task list. You can check network connection speed, utilization also. Could be anti virus program McAfee, Norton, Symantec have habit of using up memory, try AVG Free anti virus or NOD32 free is supposed to be good too. Or could be virus.

    Also if your CPU fan is failing or is clogged the system could be overheating and slow. You can check your computer's temps using speedfan from site below. http://www.almico.com/speedfan442.exe
