    sounds like you have too many background applications running.

    I second this^
    Hit ctrl+alt+delate >> task manager >> applications: leave your internet browser
    >>processes: close anything listed with your login name

    Yeah, try and hit Ctrl+Alt+Del and switch to the "Processes" tab and it should list all of the running programs...trust me, there are more than you think :D !
