Computer Very Slow & Computer freezes, please HELP

  Solartopi 20:22 07 Jan 2008

I'm having problems with my computer, I am thoroughly frustrated - it is so slow and I don't know what to do. If I try to click on a link it just freezes and I have to eventually turn the computer off & restart. Any suggestions please?

Make sure the air vents are not clogged up with dust and fluff.If so the inside will also need a clean. Press Ctrl Alt and delete at the same takes you into Task Manager.Processes.Under CPU system idle process should be showing about 97% all the rest the remaining 3% that is if you have nothing running at the time.If anything else using up a high % of the CPU what is it.
