You can do a lot by keeping the system clean.

Run a virus check with Malwarebytes.

Use CCleaner to clean out your system.

Uninstall all unnecessary programs from Programs and Features, or use Revo Uninstaller if you feel up to it.

Defragment your hard drive for good measure.

Vacuum the dust out of your case, to avoid overheating issues.
