Do you have anti-virus software and have all the latest updates? If yes, when did you last do a complete system scan? A worm might be slowing you down because it's using your internet connection to continue making copies of itself and sending them over the net. Also, you sholudl download wither Spybod Search & Destroy or Ad-Aware (I use both), update them, and run both of them. That'll clean up any crapware (my personal blanket term for adware/spyware) on your computer, which can cause computer slowdown and sometimes network lag.

Pethegreat, malicious programs that are installed on a computer before you install security software may very well disable or criple those security programs. Now, ad-aware does NOT screw over your system, if it did, something could be potentially wrong with your machine.
