How much RAM memory do you have (you can find this out under SYSTEM in Control Panel)

Have you got all the proper + newest drivers installed

Is windows updated?

what are the name of the last 3 programs you installed recently., look for a directory name prefetch in the windows\prefetch delete all the files , then chack ms config, stop services that are not needed.

Don't know why but Black Viper,and others around the net have advised said not to use msconfig to disable services ,to use services.msc [in run ] or in control panel admin tools

if u go into services and disable you will be boggled. too many stuff htere to deal with, its best in msconfig, staright foreward and can be easier enabled if you need to. msconfig only deals with startup programs that are install by user. services deals with every single service running on windws from it;s installed
