Brand name computers usually come with a boatload of unnecessary programs running. Post a screenshot of running processes with the "all users..." button ticked and maybe we can spot some stuff you can get rid of. :)

Maybe it's some rotten Feng shui.

The fact that location has an effect makes me think it's something to do with your network connection. Could there be something in how your home network is set up which is making the computer use a lot of extra resources trying to connect?

What programs are you running when this happens? A screenshot of all your running processes might help.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Mint 9

Lets try disabling your network adapter(s). What happens? Still slow, or does it work normal?

Use the Win7 wireless utility, not the bloated factory one. Turn it off.

Use a lean mean AV solution like free MS Security Essentials or Avast 5, which work perfectly with the Windows FIrewall.

Set a System Restore point, uncheck all of the items in msconfig>Startup except AV and gadgets. All others are freeloaders on your RAM/CPU and can start when you click them.

Clean and order your HD with CCleaner then Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers.
