Default PC Slowing Down

Whatz goin on. Lately, my pc has been running much slower than before. I know that I only have about 10 gigs or so left on my 80 gb hard drive. As far as spyware and viruses, I'm fine so I'm not sure why it could be running slow.

I even tried to defrag the hard drive and that didn't make much difference. Would you all just recommend to completely restore the pc and start all over again? By the way, I'm running on a 2.9ghz celeron with 768mb of ram.

How many processes do you have running? Do you have any un-needed programs running in the background? If you got Norton you should probably switch to an antivirus program that uses less resources.

Alt,Cntrl, Del...And if you dont want some programs to load up, upon startup, type msconfig, into run...And then you can select what programs to starup when you turn on the computer for the first time.
