use something like spybot. first remove all spyware, and check wut u have running at startup (also doable via spybot). i suspect its one of these problems.

goto start-->run-->msconfig-->startup and "services" and tick "hide all microsoft services , uncheck all but the unnecessary , also do you happen to use norton antivirus/internet security? they are major resource hoggers

what the others said mate, download and run ad aware se and spybot, then download a programme called ccleaner and run that, then do a defrag, and lastly do the msconfig thing and get rid of any programmes that you dont need starting up automatically when you switch your pc on.

Doing ALL of that should make a big difference
