Possible things that could slow down your computer:

- Viruses, some viruses will dramatically slow your computer as some eat away at your memory!!

- Your memory may be a bit low, to check how much you have left just open my computer and right click on the C drive and click properties, if the memory is low, uninstall un-needed items!!

- You may have too many pages up at a time! It all depends on how fast your prossessor is, so close down un-needed pages and see how things go.

- If your in my position.. Your computer may be just getting a bit old. Mines atleast 5 - 7 years old.

It could either be your system or the fact that you have too much stuff on it, like pictures, music, videos, viruses, desktop background, or you have installed a lot of software.
