Most tech enthusiasts will not run the factory preinstall with all of the sponsored bloatware and duplicate OEM utilities which have much better versions built into Win7. Instead they Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 to free up the OS to run in it's native feather-light, instantaneous state.

Until then you can Clean Up Factory Bloatware to achieve close to the same thing. Just establishing a Clean Boot may solve much of it.

If not work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

My system has slowed to a crawl (and rebooting makes no difference). Every mouse click takes anything between 10 and 60 seconds to get a response and most programmes state 'not responding'. When I boot into Safe Mode it's fine, so I'm guessing it's not a hardware problem. I tried rolling back...
