So i've been having a couple computer issues lately.

1. it takes 5min+ to start up / shut down.
2. when it starts up, it sits at a point where no icons or task bar show (only desktop bg).
3. pauses for a second or so every couple minutes while playing a game.
4. has slowed down in general and will be very "touchy" about what opens and how fast (if at all).

Any suggestions?

I have ant-virus/spyware and i have 2 reg cleaners.

I know that is very broad, but where should i start?

try defragging? get rid of stuff in startup to see if that helps. if you run msconfig you can selectively remove stuff from startup to troubleshoot.

what anti-virus and spyware apps are you running? are they up to date with the latest definitions?
