comment Slow for no apparent reason
Thanks for the help, people, but Ubuntu crashed on me yesterday, and I see little reason to try and repair it, as it's more trouble than it's worth in my opinion. Installing a new distro (probably not Ubuntu, I've had it with bugs and slowness for the time being) will fix this problem too, so I'm going to close this question. Thanks again for the help.

Huh, got a bigger problem now. I just installed updates, and now I can't get past my login screen >.<

The back of my case is covered with "Warranty void if seal is broken" stickers, so that's not an option.

@aking1012 This is not a "wifi not working" question. This is a question which can have thousands of causes, and one answer isn't going to be the solution for everyone.

@January The system is slower after it just booted up, and then after waiting 10 minutes it's quite fast again (still a bit slow, though), and it starts gradually getting slower again.

@zxcdw Current load averages: 1.96 2.38 2.30; But that's with a 1080p movie, VirtualBox, FileZilla and Google Chrome running. So this might not be the best time to look at the load averages :p It's not only certain applications being slow, it's the whole system.

@aking1012 Every case is different, so not a duplicate.

Arista and MMC are both broken on Ubuntu 12.04. WinFF is quite useless as it only has a few presets and most of them are broken anyway.

I'm not talking about one specific movie, but the movie in question is 800MB. I stopped the conversion when the size reached 500MB, as this was too large already.
