    Hi, and welcome to the TSG forum :) (y)

    whats the temperature of the PC like - is it getting hot?

    have you run a virus scan / spyware scan.
    there are a number of on-line scans here

    Have you added any software programs recently or made changes to PC

    do you have a lot of programs at startup?
    try
    start>
    run>
    msconfig
    and look in the startup tab you may find loads of programs which are hogging resources
    you can find a list of startup programs here
