  • Was there anything you installed (hardware or software) before your computer became slow? That might be the clue. If you don't have a clue, try increasing the page file as already suggested and if you're using Vista you could use a flash drive for ReadyBoost. And maybe upgrade your RAM. Also, a great anti-virus program I can recommend that uses only few memory is Prevx.
