Windows 7 was already installed when I bought it.

Is my PC running the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows?
64-bit.

After those two hours, the slowness stopped and now we're back to normal. I wonder what was going on during those two hours...? It was the same last night when it occured again; slowness out of nowhere for a short time, then back to normal. I don't think there is a way to know what was running and when, huh?

There are a multitude of things that can slow a computer and / or programs running.
Often much time & effort, through troubleshooting, is required to find a solution.

Keep it under observation & let us know the outcome or if you require more help.

Do you happen to have any scans scheduled to run when your computer slows down? Like a malware scan or an automatic backup program? You might be able to figure out what's causing the slow down with a free tool called Process Monitor. Process Monitor is an advanced monitoring tool for Windows that shows real-time file system, Registry and process/thread activity. Some people have called it a Task Manager on steroids. And you don't even have to install it on your machine. At the bottom of the page is a link to "Run Process Monitor now from Live.Sysinternals.com".

I'd run Process Monitor when your machine is running normally just to become familiar with what's running and how much system resources they're using. This will become your baseline. (It's going to show a lot of infp so you could even take a screen shot or use the snipping tool to capture the data.) Then the next time your computer slows down launch Process Monitor again (take another screen shot or snip) compare the two and see what's changed.
