Re: why is my pc running really really slow?

There could be a LOT of reasons, from whatever software is installed, to the hardware specs, to malware and viruses. Check the Task Manager to see if the CPU is maxed out, Give us the model and product number so we can check out the hardware specs, run an antivirus scan and an anti malware scan. See if your Hard Drive is full, etc. Just too many variables for such a generic and common PC issue.
