This is a fine place to ask. One quick thing to check, do you have Anti-virus/Adware/etc software that has been recently updated and done a full scan of the computer?

Other things to try first: a registry cleaner, defrag, new video drivers.

And also, if you could post full system specs, that would help.

Do you have XP? A quick way (should work on Vista, though it may be a little different) is go to start > Run > and type 'dxdiag' (without quotes) then just copy over the info on the first screen. That will get us the basics.

I would recommend going to download.com and getting this program: Advance systemcare personal. Just search "advance systemcare"

Since you're new to computers, its' a fairly easy way to clean out all the junk files, repair registry issues, get rid of adware/spyware, and so on. And you just have to click one button to do it. So it's worth a try. I even use it for quick maintenance myself.
