    Since early december, my computer started to get slower and when I'm playing music and I scroll down the website, a popup from skype appears when I'm playing, it gets really slow. I've reinstalled windows, downloaded latest drivers and its brand new, and still the same slow poke stuff. I wonder if it´s hardware, but I can't tell.

    Processor: Dual Core 2.8ghz
    Memory: 4gb DDR memory
    Video card:Nvidia GTX 460
    Motherboard:Gigabyte GA G41M Combo

    It used to be fast and play most of games, but now I can't even listen to music and browse websites.

    What OS?
    Which browser?

    How long after a boot before the problem appears?

    If, when you are having the problem, you right click on the task bar and open task manager, you should be able to click on the "Processes" tab, sort with a click on the "CPU" column header, and then view running processes in order of how much CPU power they are using. This should help you find the culprit process or processes...
