run your antivirus program, as well as lavasort ad-aware, microsoft antispyware and spybot search and destroy. that should clean up everything that youve got on there.

also, if you arent already, download mozilla firefox, and use it instead of internet explorer...

if IE is letting in spyware etc, which it normally does, then that would slow down the games. do the steps that i put in above, and see if that makes a difference.

oh!!!, i know i bet you have too small of hard drive for all the stuff that you have on ur computer, i bet you have a 40gb hdd, and i bet you have 35gb left, cause 40-35=2 usable gb left, cause when you get the computer, windows xp takes up about 2.5 gb of hdd space, so maby try and get another 40 gb hdd, or get all ur crap onto an external hdd, or just burn it on to cd

~hope this helps~
