Do I have a memory leak?

I have a Win 2000 machine with 512 mb of ram and it has been running great.. All of the sudden today after I rebooted all of my apps are running slower.. like 10x slower.. I didn;t find anything with AntiVirus or Ad-Aware.. Any suggestions? rebooting did not help

its not a memory leak, if the problem happens immediately after rebooting.
if it was a memory leak.. it would gradually get slower, the longer it was running.. and a reboot would clear it back out..

check the processes in your task manager and see if there is anything out of the normal.
also try spybot and hijackthis

Close Alll Browser Windows, then
Remove the Isearch Program via
1) Click 'Start' menu
2) Select 'Control Panel' and open the 'Add/Remove Programs' option.
3) Find "iSearch" in the list of programs and click 'Change/Remove' and follow the prompts to remove iSearch.
4) If iSearch is not listed in your Add/Remove Programs list or just to be certain that all its components have been removed.
Run HijackThis again and some of these items should disappear. Whatever is remaining after the isearch removal from the control panel, let HijackThis Fix it.

Let HiJackThis fix these Items:
