How much RAM memory do you have in the laptop ????

Most Virus and Spyware scans are likely to work better in Windows Safe-Mode.

Computer Speed and Performance May Decrease

When you open, then close programs,
programs may not free up RAM memory.
That is called "Memory Leak".
Restarting computer will clear out its RAM memory.
OR
install more RAM memory.

ALSO
To have more RAM available at startup,
You can do Start, then RUN, then type
msconfig
Then uncheck items in the Startup tab.
