slow computor

my machine is running very slowly, in that it takes minutes for any programme to run. if I try and access more than 3 programmes it locks up. If I try to move a page screen to a differeant part of the monitor I get left a big white space. Hard drive is 160 and is only 49% full, 2 mb of RAM. There are AVG and Widows defender running. Short of getting a new CPU or re-loading windows, what else can I try/

Hi there it could be a virus or spyware, i take it u have ativirus and antispy ware software installed, Go and boot your pc into save mode and ran all the antispiware and virus software, do a disk defrag, disk clean up, this migh help.

To get into safe mode restart the pc and continuesly hit F8 till u get a list and pick safe mode.

Isn't Windows Defender an antivirus program? If so, it's almost certainly conflicting with AVG which definitely is.

Stop or completely remove one of them and see what happens.
