If your reluctant to give out your PC details online that is understandable. What i was going to say is perhaps you need to upgrade your RAM or
The next best thing i have founnd is a complete format or re-install of your OS (Operating System)
Most genuine PC's come with an install disk for Windows etc. It's not as hard or as scary as you may think, all you need to do is put the OS disk in
and restart, the PC will run the disk from boot up and give you the options to re-install.
There are a re few things you need to remember before doing this though:
Back up all vital or important files, media and documents - an external HD would be perfect for this.
Make sure you have a copy of your drivers on disk or backed up, eg; Audio, Graphics.
Make sure you have an install disk that would have come from your ISP for your internet settings and modem drivers.
You will lose all previously installed updates and programs that didnt come standard with your OS. Updates are free but depending on how many updates
you have, it may take awhile to download the ''upto date'' updates.
If you have purchased software or games online make sure your purchase is still valid and the software can be re-installed or you have the disks
As i said it sounds scary and complicated but it's not that bad once you do it and your PC will run like new
