    Hmm...so not that many then... Do you use any type of cleaner? If not try this.. CCleaner - Home

    You could also try defragging your pagefile.. The easiest way to do this is to turn the pagefile off, reboot and then turn it back on again with perhaps a larger amount. Try the figure windows recommends.

    You could always try it (it's free) and have you run any scans for virus/malware activity lately? Sometimes spyware can cause the symptoms you describe

    Are you actually running any security? Oh and don't think that just because your lappie is new that it still cannot have an infection... I've heard of machines getting infected within a few minutes of being online..

    You can download it for free here: AVG Free - Download Free Antivirus and Antispyware for Windows 7, Vista and XP

    I strongly suggest you download and install it straight away... If not the above then something, anything to get some protection..
    Here's another free utility, this time from Microsoft.. Many use it in the forum and has been found to be good at what it does..

    http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/


    Please,please get some protection... You could lose your computer! There are viruses out there which will eat your HDD alive!
