    First off, I have an inspiron 6000, 2.0ghz and 1 gig ram. When something I've downloaded finishes, and is being copied to the folder that I chose to save it in, my computer slows to a turtle. Sometimes it takes like 10 minutes for the file to finish copying. I literally can't do anything else while it's doing this, cause it's so fuckin slow. I know I didn't used to have this problem. Any ideas?

    How much space do you have available on your hard drive?

    Have you defragged the hard drive lately?

    Have you been running antivirus/antispyware scans?
