GUI lag problems. hardware issue maybe?

For the last few week i have been getting terrible lag when opening programs, manipulating files around, and opening context menus. Sometimes it takes up to a minute to open the start menu. I'm using a fresh install if windows 7 pro 64bit and am not receiving any errors in the event viewer. Any ideas if this could be a hardware fault?

Welcome to the Forums.
How new is the install? It sounds more like some malware.
