Computer slowing down ...

I'll test the connection speed to rule that out but I have cable internet and it's typically very fast - so I think the bottleneck is with the machine. Do those "speedupmyPC" products work? What else can I try first?

Run antivirus software. Then download a product called Mbam and run it.

Your problem is adware

Yes but you can run them both.

I run the following programs to keep things in check:

Superantispyware
Mbam
SpyBot
ComboFix
CCleaner
Black light

These programs run monthly keep things in check and running smoothly and also keep my servers clean.
