    Over the past few days my pc has been acting weird, if i watch streaming videos online it tends to run out of memory (not getting a message just my guess because the video's dont get past a certain point) firefox seems to react really slow and so does my pc in general.

    Attached is screenshot of the task manager a few moments ago, can anyone who knows about this stuff see if there is anything there that should not be? I have just moved back to uni and am on a lan with the whole building (and others around it) i have turned file sharing off but am still concerned because since moving here the pc is acting weird.

    Try using this http://www.ccleaner.com/

    If you are sharing net with alot of people that might affect ur download speeds but you might just need to clear firefoxs cache.

    I see you have avg anti virus. Do a speed test and then exit avg completely then do a speed test again (http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/). I was using avg and had to uninstall and start using Avira because it was slowing my browsing speed down. Hope this helps.
