    Question Has anyone faced this kind of issue ?

    My windows machine recently got affected from spyware, trojan etc., So I placed all the files as dump in a drive (say "F")and formatted other drives (say C,D,E) After installing the os I finally formatted the dump drive (F) after copying the files to another drive (E). I purchased Kaspersky, installed and its working fine.

    The issue now is my system has become very slow, to such an extend that when i use the vertical scroll bar, first the scroll bar comes in its placed and only after few seconds the page gets scrolled, which creates strain to eye and at times head ache. My physical memory shows only 448 mb rather 512 mb.

    Kindly suggest to fix this issue.

    Try lowering the protecting level of Kaspersky.

    Try disabling unused system services. It eats your resources. Try what buldozerce advised above. And try to use one of your partitioned drive as your virtual memory

    I have experienced somewhat same issues as you describe after cleaning a computer for viruses, and what I have done to deal with it is

    delete the partition -> reboot -> make new partition -> reboot -> format and install.

    or

    delete the partition -> turn off power -> turn on power -> make new partition -> turn off power -> turn on power -> format and install.

    what I think is causing it is some fragments or code snippets laying in memory, and slowing down/corrupting the system due to not being deleted. (theory based on memory dump)

    you may ask why turn off power, and that is to make sure all memory is being erased.

    I have experienced this kind of scenario 8-10 times under windows XP.
