  1. OK i've been suffering from this problem for months now and now I've had to sit a Lan Party out because i didn't want people to see how slow my computer is running... it never used to run this slow but now it is... Here's what's running according to that pcpitstop site:

    Browser Helper Objects Installed
    AcroIEHlprObj Class

    SSVHelper Class

    It is "normal" to have many strangely named windows on this list. Do not post questions about this information unless requested by the support staff.

    dam. look at all that shiit u got running at the same time.

    do they all start when the computer starts?

    go to start, run.. type msconfig. click on the startup tab on the top and uncheck everything except you antivirus and firewall

    Google or use this startup list to decide what you would like to keep at boot.
    http://castlecops.com/StartupList.html.
    Download and run CCleaner or the Disk clean up utility and take out the junk that might be choking the HDD. Analyze for fragmentation, if needed defragment after the cleanup and chkdsk to improve speed and performance.
    Ensure the system clean of nasties. Add more RAM if ur running on less ( 512 and more wud be good) some links
