|You appear to be running Windows XP but you are in the Windows 7 forum **** should probably be moved to Xp forum****|
You should look into what programs are starting up with windows, if you suddenly picked up a few more through new programs or new upgrades, look into removing them from automatically starting up. You should also update your Antivirus software (virus, spyware, etc.) and scan for any infection you may have picked up. You should do a disk clean up and a defrag because fragmented files take longer to load and unnecessary junk build up creates problems including bloated temp files, etc. Finally do a windows update.
