    First, you should empty out your browser cache; which include cookies, passwords, and temp files.

    Next, you need to do a (free) on-scan of your PC, such as:

    http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner

    http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

    http://support.f-secure.com/enu/home/ols.shtml

    Then do a second scan using another on-line scanner.

    Note, if you can't get to any of those sites, then you are definitely in trouble!

    That's a start! Cheers.

    Also, turn off your torrent downloads...

    Seems like you've got spyware!! It happened to me once. Follow Break-My-String's advice.

    This sounds like an active program hogging the system.
    (It could be spyware or malware... but it need not be.)

    Since your problem begins when you are online, it could be some rogue script on a webpage. Certain scripts running on some webpages will cause your browser to hang and your system to run extremely slowly.

    In your Internet Options, revert to your default settings.
    This might or might nor solve your problem.
    If it doesn't, you can try running services.msc
    There, you can individually change a few settings.
    (This is not advised if you don't understand the settings.)

    By the way, do you have only a single hard disk drive?
    If you have more than one, there's another possibility.

    U ate too much satay causing your PC to slow down is it? Try to check your process on what is hogging your pc. Or use process explorer to check for any unauthorised processes. Must be downloading too many horny stuffs. hehe..

    Use Linux - you won't have to do that at all.

    i guess this could be the problem with the OS though.
    perhaps it had been corrupt inside

    my current situation now is i had scan the whole pc and no virus no nothing.
    then brought the pc to the computer shop to check and see.. nothing also.
    then they said it could be maybe my pc has lots of files inside and all the files had been mixed up or some sort like that.etc.
    i suspect its the problem with the disk. but every folder and file still inside.


    btw, for a second, i thought of re-FORMAT the whole PC.
    what do you think? because the freezing and lagging problem still persists\

    thanks
