Adaware and spybot are both good.



http://housecall.trendmicro.com/hous...start_corp.asp is an EXCELLENT link for cleaning up your pc. Short of that look in your start-up menu, or your task manager and see what programs are running that shouldn't be.

Hey

What op sys are you using? You may have too many programs running at the same time maxing out your mem. You need to specify what applications you have running at start up. Also AD-AWARE is a spy ware program that finds and deletes unwanted spam related programs on your computer. You need to run the program once in a while to keep things clean.
