9/10 It's not what you install, It's how you use them and manage them that counts.

For example: If you have Utorrent sat constently in your taskbar, uploading/seeding to other torrent users, Then your pc will slow down a little, mainly your Internet connection.

Win7 is always fast and never hangs with a perfect install on adequate hardware. Take a look at these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which are the same for retail.

Until you get around to that you can Clean Up Factory Bloatware.

I'd also Optimize Windows 7 - Windows 7 Forums especially editing visual effects of animation, fading, sliding, dragging intact and selection rectangle which hog RAM.
