Whenever I try to run any explorer program, like search, or opening a folder (On my desk or the start menu), my computer slows down to point where the only thing I can do is close it through task manager.

This isn't the only problem. No media playing program works. iTunes started off with just freezing when I went to the music store, now it's whenever I turn it on. Anytime firefox is asked to play videos, it freezes up. Also, a couple months back my computer was completely crippled by what I assume was a virus causing a repeated opening of Dr. Watson. That's stopped, but I remember seeing drwtsn32.exe in the Task manager a couple days ago.

So, I ask people with experience, is this a virus? Something that I probably did wrong? And more importantly, is there anything I can do about it?
