Hi katyjagger,you have a spyware component called Bonzi Buddy.Plus you have to many programs running at startup.For the spyware,download a program called Ad-aware5.6(its free),this will check your system for spyware componnets,and remove them safely.You can get it here.
Hi katyjagger,yes,spyware will cause alot of the problems your having.Thats why i asked to see your startup.Also having to much running at startup will cause you problems.You can read about spyware and what it does here.
Let us know how the computer runs after you remove the spyware and remove some of them startup programs.Just a note here,just because you stop a program from starting up doesnt mean you lose that program.You will still be able to run them from programs.
