My computer has been working fine but has now decided to run very slow in all applications. Everything takes a long time to open and it takes a while to shut things down i.e. you can see pages closing bit by bit. I have tried removing as much rubbish as possible and cleared all cache internet files cookies etc ran maintenance wizard defrag etc. I have over 257mb of ram and a 15gb hard drive which is only a quarter used. Processor 466 celeron. Any suggestions/help please

Your not using an active desktop or one of the win 98 themes by any chance, are you?
