There are many reasons why a computer is running very slow. - either you have a very low CPU processing speed and it cannot easily handle the processing and loading of your Operating System and applications. Solution: upgrade your CPU. - either you are running low on memory will all these applications loaded all at the same time. Solution: upgrade or add more memory as long as your motherboard can handle them (i.e. more memory slots). - either you haven't defraged your hardrives after doing heavy copying/deleting/moving of files and/or installing/uninstalling programs and softwares. Solution: Defrag your drives. - either you have a virus or spywares or backdoor programs running in the background. Solution: Install/update your anti-virus and anti-spywares. Install a firewall is a good addition. - either your computer is shared in a network and there are other users accessing your shared file/folder (worst, you are probably being hacked). Solution: Check if you have folders shared to the network, unshare them. I think there are plenty more reasons why a computer is running slow but right now I'm kinda pressed on time and I need to go.

The first problem with your computer is that it might just be a little too old to keep the step with the new technology programs that appear. The second thing i think that you could have some kind of viruses malware programs. You should punt an antivirus and if none of this solves your problem format you hard disk and install a new and fres copy of windows. Good luck!
