Computer lagging really slow.

Hi guys! I notice the last couple of weeks that my computer is acting really slow, I mean slow like opening up firefox or trying to move the mouse... I just built this computer last year and I had run av and spybot and coming up clean. Im currently at work but when I get home I'll put on my comp spec.

PS whats that best method to put my comp spec on here?

Someone told me that could be something to do with the power unit. I had it for a while then cleared up the desk top and kicked out the jams and it got better.

Could it be weirdness, running in the background?

Open Task Manager and see what's eating the CPU, for a start.

Also, have a look at Process Monitor http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645

It'll show you EVERYTHING that's going-on.
