hi, pc is running slow and fails to end programs leaving pages/boxes still on the screen. i have to ctr/alt/del to finish but most times even that doesnt work. i have adaware, norton and spybot but that doesnt seem to help, also im geting pop ups even when im not on internet. im running xp pro and im using broadband for connection, really getting tittsed off now, any ideas??????

Sound like something nasty may have taken over the computer. Try downloading and running Adaware, and also Spybot Search and destroy.

i think the sasser worm does this! makes your machine very very very sluggish,
Can you use programs at their normal speed or are they slow as well opening and stuff?
