I have had a problem with my computer for over a week now. It is running slow. If I open more than one page at a time, it almost stops eg. if I open word as the second page, then there is a delay in what I have typed and what appears on the page. I rely on my computer and use it ever day so it is very upsetting when it doesn't work. When I am on the internet, pages turn fine (so long as I have one page open at a time) I have checked my ISP speed (which is broadband and is the correct speed ie fastest). I have also defragmented my 2 drives; taken everything off my start up that I didn't need; run spywareblaster etc. Can anyone suggest anything else please??? I am now worried that it may be my CPU (is there any way if you can test if it is working ok?). The specs of my computer are Athlon process2100; 512k ram; 2 hard drives (total 120MB).

You said youve run spyware blaster? what about adaware and spybot? you dont really "run" spyware blaster it just silent blocks bad products and doesnt get rid of any on your system but does prevent them from executing i belive
