Lately my computer's been running slower than usual, and when I try to watch DVDs (using my dandy DVD drive) the picture and audio is all choppy. I run AdAware & SpyBot regularly, but my Norton AntiVirus is pretty outdated. Can anybody tell me how I can get my computer back to it's old self, and what the hell's wrong with it??

Is your resolution too high? I know when I try to watch DVDs at 1680x1050 ("full" wide screen) it can get a bit choppy and I'll have to turn it down to 1400x1050 or so, especially if it's an action movie.

The first question I would ask is what have you changed or added? (Especially in the way of applications/services (things like Norton which pretty much run constantly to keep an eye on whatever it is they are supposed to do/prevent))
Troubleshooting a computer online like this with little to no information isn't the easiest thing to do either. It's a lot like coming here and saying my nose is running and I have a temperature. What should I do?
