Got a new pc its working great but its a little slow what should I do

i finally got me a new pc the specs for the older pc which gave me no problems what so ever are listed in the my spec section the specs for the pc that my question is about is listed in the picture below. my problem with the new pc is that when i use the pc to open up programs and things like that sometimes my mouse lags as if the entire unit is lagging although im just opening a program or if i have 2 programs open at ones the mouse starts to lagg all over the screen and im just wondering why would a new pc have signs of sluggishness that my old one did not have when this one has better graphics card and better processor could it be the factory version of windows 7 thats on the machine? Would installing my retail version of windows 7 help due to the fact that it would not download all the extra software that come pre-installed on my new pc. Or could it be the driver that I installed for the graphics card ?the specs for the old unit are listed in the my specs section if more system specs are needed for the pc in question ill be happy to provide more http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/7710/43545007.jpg

Can you be so kind as to download and run speccy, then post a snip of the summary page?

Speccy - System Information - Free Download

also, a snip of your WEI individual scores would be nice, under view and print detailed information

Your cpu is not far from the bottom of the scale for current AMD processors, roughly equivalent in performance to a 2.13 GHz Core 2 duo from about 3 years ago. Not much you can do about the processor, but reducing the number of programs that run automatically would help immensely. There's nothing wrong that a little cleanup of factory installed bloat wouldn't help, followed by stopping and disabling unnecessary services and defragmenting your HDD..
take a look at task manager, msconfig and services.msc on my laptop, then compare to yours

madtownidiot i just got this pc yesterday if you say my amd is no better than one that was made 3 years ago should i take the pc back and get something else that will do what i want it to do i still have time to exchange it if the processor is that old then not exchanging the pc for another one would hurt me later on down the road
