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
