laptop very slow and heats underneath

  santa2 13:25 21 Aug 2006

My laptop runs very slow on startup its takes about 5 minutes for everything to startup once past the welcome screen it actually freezes then goes to normal; but i noticed after 20 minutes that underneath at the back left it became extremely hot?
Can anyone advice?

i had the very same problem with my laptop about a yearago.Turned out i had virus ref slow start up.Regarding the heat that was due to fan being underneath so there was no gap between laptop and desk so no air was allowed to circulate,so i raised it of desk slightly.sorry if stating the obvious but it worked for me.
