Having program on a hard drive does not slow any system down. You can have hundreds or thousands of programs installed and as long as they aren't running they don't slow the system down one bit. All they do is take up hard drive space.
So your older system was running slow because of some other reason. More then likely the drive was starting to fail, which happens all the time. So that error you are getting is because you need a new HDD.
