Hard drive problem?

A few weeks ago, programs would freeze up and show a "(not responding)" message. It was not bad at first, but now it can take hours for anything to load. Is this a problem with my hard drive or is it some other piece of hardware?

    You should download the manufacturer of your hard drive diagnostic software from their web site. If the tests fail then the hard drive is faulty, and if the tests pass then you have a software problem which will probably be best fixed by reinstalling the operating system.

    Thanks, it turned out it was my hard drive. Time for an upgrade I guess.
