Default Computer Starting to Slowdown?!?

My computer is approximately 2 months old and now has just recently
started to slow down after 3-4 hrs of use after each bootup. I have
scanned for viruses, malware/spyware, uninstalled unecessary programs,
defragmentized the hard drive, run diskcheck and cleared cookies and
temporary files from Internet Explorer. After a few hrs the system
slows down substantially thus making it difficult to browse the net
and switch inbetween programs.

I am currently running: Windows XP SP2 (with all updates), Pentium
Core Duo 2.4ghz, 2 Gigs of Ram, Norton Internet Security.

Any thoughts?

Open the case and clean out the 'dust bunnies'. The CPU will throttle back
if it starts to overheat. (Not sure how much your system is slowing down -
it's subjective.)

Hey you EggHead DeadHead HoopleHead:

Do you really think the OP is coming back to read a reply to a post he made
in 2007? Do you EggHeaders not get that after several years, they are gone?

Pay no attention to this guy - he has nothing better to do than wait for
people unfortunate enough to post helpful replies to posts they haven't
spotted are old, and then pounce on them.

(And of course he uses silly aliases to make it harder to killfile him.)

Loneliness and anger at not being thought of as "special" sometimes makes
people do silly things. It's easier to just ignore them and move on than to
waste ether on them. It's often a problem with some of the folks who try to
use google or whomever to try to read newsgroups. Comments like that to the
less experienced users or those who might miss a date are totally uncalled
for IMO and serve no useful purpose.
Personally I think killfiles are a waste of time too; after reading such
trash a couple times you begin to know you can just skip those posts.

Just talking off the top of my head.

Cheers,

Twayne`
