if it's getting progressively worse then it might be a virus or spyware which is totally messing up the PC.

someone with more knowledge might give you advice if that's the case.

i have Norton anti-virus on it an it says that there are no viruses. if there is a anti-virus program that is better then nortin's please let me know, and if anyone could recomend me a good anti-spywear progam as well would be very helpful(looking for ones that are ether free or have like a 30day free trial)

I know there are some Norton users out there, and to them I apologize...but Norton can cause some *ahem* problems with other programs. Definitely check out Osiris Spyware Guide as advised above, it worked for me when all else failed one time.
