    Maybe your fans are getting clogged and dusty thereby increasing your temperatures and slowing your machine down.

    Have you checked all of your fan (including your PSU fan) and dusted the inside of your case with compressed air?

    If the dust is cleared out and it's still slow, how long has it been since you last reformatted the PC? I find I have to reformat yearly or windows slows down dramatically

    although I've probably reformatted over 8 times in the last 6 months =\

    ya its most likely dust in the PSU, iremoved the fan and there was some dust on the CPU heatsink as well. But its mostly just slow at star up. Right now its good, but earlier it was taking up to 25 seconds to load a page

    you should go to msconfig, and disable some of the obvious junk you don't need when windows starts.

    As for the noise, your fans bearings might be getting messed up. On my old computer I had 3 fans for my CPU and one of them got messed up. When I turned on my computer it would make loud, incremental noises every few seconds and it would slowly calm down over a few minutes time.

    You take a "Valid" Windows install disc with a Legit Key and boot from the CD on startup. You then go to install windows on your hard drive. I usually delete the current partition, then create a new partition using the NTFS file system. I do a normal format, not quick. Intall windows, install drivers, update windows, and then install programs.

    It usually takes a couple of hours to get it back to normal. This will completely delete everything that was on your hard drive.
