Everything slowed! HELP!

  1. I have a real crappy eMachines that I use for work, just basic Windows Office apps mostly. It's worked fine for everthything until last week. All of the sudden it is chugging slowly. It takes a while to switch between applications and render web pages. For instance, when I click my 'Favorites' button, it opens up the panel and the list of favorites takes about 2 seconds to appear, and they appear in chunks from top to bottom.

    I wonder if it's that the video card has gone bad. I know it's no virus or spyware because I'm very careful with what I download and I've scanned it 8 different ways.

    Suggestions please!!

    Thanks!

    Your hard drive is probably dieing... There are many other possibilities, but with any Emachines, who really knows where to start. Good luck!
