    New gateway computer about eight days ago. Takes a long time to load anything, is lightning fast the first two months. Windows 7 running avg anti-virus, run and pseudo. I need to get rid of or one or more or there are some programs I can go to find out why this computer is running very slow?

    In general terms, slowness can be caused by malware, a hard drive that is getting full (less than 10 - 15% of free space) and an excess of temporary files.


    Another program I like - also free ! - is Piriform's 'CCleaner' for getting rid of temporary files (www.piriform.com). Just two points with its use. On the second page, 'Applications', make sure the box against 'RegEdit' is unticked, and secondly, DON'T try to clean your registry.
