Sounds like you should defragment your drive you should also use spyware software to find what is on the drive.

im planning on defragmenting soon, also running ewido and norton scan.

I have gone through my installed list and removed un-needed software, games etc.

and have rummaged through desktop folders and deleted unwanted/unneeded things.

anything else i can do.

Sounds like the problem IS fragmentation.

As you have removed so much data, you normally find your computer abit slugish

The tool is called "CCleaner" (Crap Cleaner)

It removes files in your "Temp" directories, your cookies (you can choose to keep some), history, "Recently Opened" list on many tools, etc

You can also select folders to clear ontop of all of these.
And you can choose not to clear somethings, but clear others...
