Default slow computer

Thanks for all the replies. I have two HD running in my computer, one is 80 GB and the other one is 120GB, both of them 7200rpm.
The 80 GB has several partitions, the system file resides on a partition that is 20 GB.

I have ad-ware 6.0 and have deleted all the spyware programs on my computer, and my computer is still slow.

Norton sucks, but McAfee sucks even more!!!! Use either Avast home 4.0 or Panda Antivirus Platinum 7.0.
