    sounds like you have too much running in the background.

    check the system tray by your clock and see what icons are there, shut off things you dont need.

    Start by disabling WiFi, Bluetooth, Infrared etc. Then (as xtianw suggests) move through your System tray and close anything that doesn't look useful.

    Depending on your aptitude with computers (read: how brave/good at guessing you are), you could run 'msconfig' and untick un-needed programs under the Startup tab.

    Stuff that's totally useless for example would be: quicktime updater, java updater, adobe updater, itunes updater. And basically anything else with reference to "auto-update".

    It's also an idea to go into your Programs and Features (inside Control Panel) and start uninstalling all the useless pre-installed junk that HP loves to throw on its systems.

    Good luck!
