      Maybe it's time to switch to Apple? By using MacOSX, you will be looking at eliminating 90% of the problems that you have stated here. Well, I am just part-kidding. I own a PC running Windows 7 too. It's just frustrating when you have to deal with a slow PC when in reality, you have only just bought it for less than a year.

      In my opinion, format the harddrive and reinstall the Windows seem to be more efficient way of recovering the loss of PC speed.
