    For the last few months my computer has been running slow. Sometimes when I click on a link or if I hit the back button, it takes a second for my computer to respond. Also, the typing sometimes slows down so that I have to wait for the letters to appear. I also noticed a drop in the noise level when the computer was working, so I replaced the psu with an antec 430 watt. This fixed the fan problem, however, my computer still runs erratically, especially after it has been on a while.

    Any help?

    Hi, and welcome to TSG

    I assume you defrag regularly, if not, do so...

    Also, go here, find a registry cleaner and clean the registry - that should help:

    But if your machine only has this problem after it's been on for a while it could be an overheating problem. :)

    Also, seeing as it's apparently come on gradually, it's unlikely to be spyware etc. but just to be on the safe side, run an anti-virus scan and download and run ad-aware, spybot search and destroy, CWShredder and spyware blaster:

    For Spyware tools, some sites to download from are:

    Get back here if your problem still isn't fixed.
