Slow Dell please help!

  BRFCIDB 20:45 10 Jan 2010

I have a Dell XP420 which I have had for 18 months, everything has been fine until I installed Kaspersky 2010 2 days ago. Since then the pc has run very slow and keep coming up with "prog not responding". I have uninstalled Kaspersky but still have the problem. It could be just a coinsadance that I installed it when it went wrong! As an expample whilst I am typing this it is taking a few seconds for the text to appear.

Are there any checks I can do to see if cpu/memory etc are ok?

Check Add Remove Programs to see if you have Net Framework 3 and update if you have uninstall them

you could try running programs like SPECCY or SYSTEM SPEC have you tried running some cleaning software, doing a scan with a program like MALWAREBYTES and defrag you drive.

Did you uninstall Kaspersky this way by stopping it running first?
