    iMac or Dell?

    iMac does everything a PC does under boot camp. Get a mac because PCs stink. A word of warning... iMacs are not user servicable!

    Virus, is it gone?

    Do you have any other applications running, such as ones that start up automatically when you turn on your Mac? If one of them is doing something very intensive, your Mac could slow down. Go to System Preferences, click Accounts, and then click Login Items. Just so you know, there are normally some things in there, such as "iTunesHelper". In mine, I have "SpeechSynthesisServer", and some google things since I have some google software on my mac. To remove an item, check it and click the - button. Did you recently set up Time Machine? That's slowed down my Mac in the past. Try turning off Time Machine and see if your Mac speeds up. Are you sharing your internet connection? That might slow down YouTube and Hulu, if someone else is using it with you. If you use Wi-Fi in your home, your neighbors might be accidentaly using your connection. Hope that helps!
