Default Dieing

Ok my finances laptop is running so **** slow, and I've tried everything from running defrag, to reformatting hard drive. And it still runs like it has 10 billion adwares on it. What should i do to save it?

Maybe your laptop is getting to hot, my tends to go slow sometimes for no apparent reason. But i bought a cooling base for it and its not to bad now.

Hello,

What laptop do you have? What is the system temperature? Do you have an up to date antivirus software installed, and do you have and use a spyware/adware scanner?
