EXTREMELY slow activity
After coming home from school i turn on my comp and play a few games and talk on AIM a bit then i restart for whatever reason and it restarts fine, except when I go to do anything (click start,open task manager, or ANYTHING) my comp slows down as if it had 2MB of ram, my mouse lags across screen and if i can open a program it actually opens about 2 minutes after clicking the shortcut. Usually this problem goes away after a day but i continue to have this problem about once every month. What can I do to fix this or even just open a program? I have a memory manager which shows me how much free ram i have left and when i start up i have 1GB free (1.25GB total), whats wrong with this thing?
If it matters any i have WinXP SP2, and also SuSe Linux 9.2 on dual boot. both are on the same hdd on different partitions. Linux runs faster than windows ever did on my comp also.
