Run an antivirus scan and download and run malwarebytes.

Then Maintain Properly

Then use a clean boot to find problems during boot

Check out your task manager, to look for process using a lot of ram

Finally, I would uninstall your antivirus and install Micfosoft Security Essentials, has small foot print.

If speed is no longer a problem, you should still follow my previous post with the exception of the clean boot, to have the best that you can.
