I notice after having the computer on for some hours the programs take a long time to load. Rebooting seems to speed up the loading once again.
Any ideas as to where I should look to fix the problem? OS is windows 7.

use superantispyware free addition to clean up any maleware which can slow down your computer
check what processes are ( in task manager ) running as probably some dont need to be on.
defrag your c drive
disc clean up in system tools

how old is the computer. Maybe need more ram

i Hope this helps

This problem has me beat. At present my programs are loading instantaneously but later in the day some are taking up to two or three minutes to load.
This has only happened over the last two or three weeks so something is amiss. Can anyone venture a reason?.

Go to control panel / performance information / advanced tools / view performance details in event log. It'll tell you whats causing it to boot slow when you turn it on. It may also tell you whats causing programs to load slowly
