Windows 7: PC slow for a couple of weeks

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, service pack 1
PC slow for a couple of weeks

It's not Time-Warner, and the computer is only a year old. So what can I do other than Malwarebytes to find out why it's running so slowly?

Remove items from your Startup and Services with the exception of Microsoft and anti-virus/firewall items in MSCONFIG, then reboot. Is it noticeably faster?

Not really. The startup is pretty fast; the slowness is when I'm on the Internet.
