Could you, perchance, fill in the system specs for us? It makes helping you much easier.

Also, is there anything specific running slow (games, a program, etc.), or are you seeing just general sluggishness from everything you run?

*Do you do your computer housework on a regular basis?
If you do everything should be ok.
Check Disk.
Disk Clean Up
Error Checking
Temporary Files Removal

* IE.8 - Safety - Delete Browsing History. -

*Make sure your windows Update is running.

*Have you checked in Task Manager/ Processes/ All Users to see what is running there?

*Do you check in Event Viewer for errors frequently?
Note any with a red mark in Application & System.

* Monitor regularly >Perfmon - {Task manager - resource monitor - CPU, Memory etc}

*Remove any software you have evaluated and decided you don't want to keep.

Run: SFC /scannow (from a command prompt) - and let it check/repair/verify your system files
