    Is Vista fully updated? Service Pack 2? If not, run the ESET On-Line Scanner:
    Eset Scanner

    Then Update Vista to Service Pack 2

    Spyware Doctor and AVG8 can slow down systems on their own (plus AVG8 is now old anyway, and not sufficient to get all viruses)

    I'd recommend uninstalling both of them
    Then running the AVG Remover http://www.avg.com/filedir/util/support/avgremover_en.exe
    Then restarting

    And download and install the light weight Free Avira: http://www.free-av.com/
    Update it and run a full scan (may as well remove the nasties that AVG8 missed)
