I would suggest your PC needs a good clear out, virus/malware check and a possible upgrade of RAM. If you needs guidance on these, let us know.

Very moody desktop,I like it.Go with'onthelimit', have a bit of a clear out and you could post your PC specs, as he says some more Ram might be needed.

Done malwarebytes,Spybot,Superantispyware,Ccleaner.IE options and did clean out,
500gb hdd, with total my documents 120gb,3g ram.
Any further help please,Also run a dic check this morning.

Could be overheating graphic card. Check inside case to make sure fans etc are working and clear of dust.

Could be corrupt or out dated video drivers, check for updates.

Could be conflicting programs difficult to solve.

Try a clean install this will eliminate old/corrupt drives and possible conflicting programs.

Could be the computer is getting old, parts do fail with age.

The pc is new build last feb,Will check all other options.
Will get back to you.Thanks.

Have you Defragged the HDD?

  Daiol 11:31 30 Oct 2010

Thanks for reply,Can you reccomend a good defrag or would the windows one be okay?.

Just a thought have you scanned the hard drive for bad sectors. If the information is being written or read from a bad sector it can slow things down.

Just because it was built last Feb doesn't it cannot go wrong.I have just had to replace a mobo on a PC built in Jan.Also had problems with ram compatibility which did not really surface until recently.
