We can't offer much assistance without a model number but being that it's a laptop, it might be running slowly due to overheating, or you may simply have installed a lot of garbage-ware, either intentionally or otherwise.

Do you use a cleaning program such as CCleaner-Slim? Have you managed your startup apps so you don't have numerous unnecessary programs loading & running in the background? Do you have a lightweight AV program (not Norton or McAfee) & do you scan for viruses & malware regularly?

Sometimes malware can cause this.

First run this freebie which often finds what AV's miss:,o...

Then run this addon toolbar remover (free) and use the Delete button after scanning:

You might want to try the following to troubleshoot to if it is a hardware problem or software problem.
1) run chdsk on your harddrive to see if you have any bad sectors
2) try degfraging your harddrive
3) check to see in your task monitor if you are using alot of ram or cpu cycles
4) if using a lot of ram try uninstalling some of your unused software
You can try some software fix some of these problem if you dont want to do it manually. Checkout

pchelper652 makes some good points. However, we have had many reports on here about system issues after using System Mechanic (and similar fix-all programs). It is usually the registry that takes a hit if this type of program gets things wrong - they rely largely on an algorithm.

Use CCleaner (see #2). It cleans up quite a lot, is free, and because it is relatively docile it does not usually mess things up.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
