Slow computer after installing Programs

Hi, I have a problem where my computer gets super slow after I install a Program. It doesnt matter what program it is, but it gets slow. The way I used to fix it was to just uninstall random programs but it has changed, I cant use my computer since it's so slow. The only way to fix it is reinstall windows but I dont want to do that as I already did that 2 times. Help Would be Great. Could it be the Hard Drive Itself, I doubt it the cpu or memory

I have a Intel Core 2 Quad core
4 GB of mem
Radeon HD 5670 GPU
and The mother board is HP's motherboard Asus IPIBL-LB Benicia

maybe this program starts as a backround program when windows start! download ccleaner go to tools and after startup there you can disable all the backround programs that you dont need!

if your sure that this programm cause you this, im strongly recomment you to unistall it , maybe is not the program that you think that it is!

I'm Sure Its a program because This always Happens plus uninstalling programs use to be the fix , and trying ccleaner wont help as i already tried that myself.

Layback Bear will fix your problem , now i think also that hard drive is the main reason, in other case you should format your disk!
