Maybe the most important factor to a badly performing computer is malware. Generally this is associated with downloading a software that includes spyware, by not having browser security options high enough, by carelessly downloading P2P files, or by declining to install security areas in a timely manner.
Step 1. Update the definitions of your anti virus and operate a full scan of your hard drive in Safe Mode. Resolve any unfixable problems. Note that some infections require extra steps until they could be removed; usually a web search will find specific directions or a particular removal tool.

Each of these slows down your launch Windows and each requires a little bit of assets while your computer is running.

Absence of Maintenance
Step 5. Cleanup your hard drive (preparation for Action 7). Delete unused programs and move old files into a CD. Unplayed games, lots of family images, zipped files that you have already opened, applications you have not found in two years, software for that old printer you put away last year—these are some types of files you can delete. Then use Window’s Disk Clean-up to delete temporary internet files, temporary PC health files, etc.
