Slow computer, IE and iTunes run slow

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 2.6 GHz / 511 MB
My IE windows and applications such as iTunes have been opening/closing/running much slower over the past couple of weeks. When I am on myspace, I get a pop up stating, "Your personal computer needs to install antivirus software!" I close the box then click back and luckily it takes me back. I have run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and deleted everything it detected. But I still have the problem. My Adobe and Java are updated.

Thanks in advance for your help!

How much free HDD space is there? Have you defragged? Run Ccleaner?

Used Space: 62,407,991,296 bytes 58.1 GB
Free Space: 57,638,486,016 bytes 53.6 GB

I tried to Defrag but it popped up, "You do not need to defragment this volume."

And I did just run Ccleaner... thanks for the heads up... I forgot about that program.

Thanks and I will let you know how my computer runs.

Hey! My computer is running well, just not as fast as my friend's computers. I did have an error with my Adobe Flash Player 10. And sometimes, I'll open up a website that uses Adobe Flash Player 10 and the page will close automatically. I did a search for "Flash" on my computer and about 100 flash players popped up. It was the exact same entry. Not sure what that means. I was searching for it so I could click on it and try to update it. Any advice? Thanks so much for your help thus far.

I am using Internet Explorer 7 Version: 7.0.5730.13

Try to delete all flash files and restart your pc.

How do you recommend I delete all flash files? I did a search for "flash" and it's been searching for over 15 minutes with over 500 files popped up, and probably way more by the time it's finished searching. Should I delete all of these? Thanks
