    I am not that great with computers but...

    Have you scanned disk and defragged lately?

    If you control. alt. delete. and get a list of running processes how many are running? I sometimes do that and notice things running that I dont need running which really slows me down so I disable them.

    I was having the same problem as you not to long ago and after doing all of those things above I reformatted my computer which I had not done in almost 2 years anyway. It fixed the problems and runs a lot faster now. Maybe one of those things will help???
