When you purchased the laptop, did you erase all the bloatware that usually comes along with it? You can look into optimizing the laptop by getting rid of services and processes you don't need and you can think about purchasing a SSD for a real speed increase in read/write. This forum has great guides that can help you optimize your laptop, you can take a look at them here : Tutorials - Windows 7 Help Forums

Check the specs on the hard drive that is installed. It's likely a 5400RPM drive. Desktop PC's run 7200RPM drives so that 5400RPM drive is going to slow it down some compared to a similar spec desktop PC. That and as mentioned, factory installed bloat ware will eat up resources and slow things down.

I have heard positive things about a program called *PCDecrapifier* The PC Decrapifier Wipes Unwanted Junk | The PC Decrapifier It automates the action of removing unwanted junk. The PC Decrapifier is Free for personal use. If you have system restore turned on, it would be wise to have a restore point before running any software that is automated in removal of other software. I would insinuate that such a utility as the PCDecrapifier is safe to use since it's made for the specific reason in mind. I doubt it would remove any system files. There is another program that I use to completely uninstall software, it's called *Revo Uninstaller Pro*, but this is not a free program.

You'll likely have to look up the specs for the hard drive itself. If you go into Device Manager and look under Disk Drives you should see the model Number. Mine is listed as WDC WD50 00AAKS-.... Googling that gets me all the specs on the drive.

Sometimes, running multiple antivirus or antispyware can cause a severe performance. Uninstall these programs that you are not using. After that make sure that you have delete the registry of uninstall programs. follow these steps to delete the registry .
Go to Run
type regedit
then HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
then SOFTWARE

In the software folder right click on the the program that you have uninstall and delete those registry
