Scan for spyware with Spybot from click here and Ad-Aware from click here , if you haven't got any antivirus get AVG from click here

Sounds like it could be a virus running in the background as a first guess. As expertec suggests run those programs and post back with any feedback.

Can you run system information in Start/All Programs/Accessories/System tools and confirm that the computer is recognising all the components and their values, ie 256Mb RAM etc.

Have you tried cleaning up your system? removing tempory files and cookies,then run a defrag program.
