It's a laptop bought from Dell:
Intel Core DuoProcessor T2500 (2GHz/667MHz FSB)
2GB, DDR2, 533MHz 2 Dimm
256MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900
100GB Toshiba MK1032GSX 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
Sony DVD+/-RW DW-Q58A
Windows XP Home Edition SP2
Everything was working fine until I had to do some work using Internet Explorer. But I used anti-virus, spyware, and adware programs to get rid of anything, but it did not fix the problem.
Though one thing I have noticed that when the drive has to read something from the drive such as copying or viewing directly on the disc, my computer's FPS drops to like 30 or 20 and the audio gets messed up hearing breaks and clicks.
So basically my drive has extremely low read and write speeds, but its interferring with my other computer activites.
