Procedure for a slow computer

  s99Raj 10:57 11 Jan 2007

If a computer, over a period of time, gradually gets slower and slower, is there a good set of procedures one should follow?

For example, opening a program or going from one web page to another, for example, takes longer and longer?

Apart from defragging and checking of viruses and spyware, what else should be tried?

Remove any/all unused programmes, run C-cleaner then defrag. Other than that, a clean re-install provided you have the necessary software.
