All sorts of reasons. Spyware can load a machine; if you download and install programs from the internet they can clog up and slow down your machine; and a clean reinstall of Windows can be a good idea. But tell us more about your machine. What operating system is it running, what are its specs, what do you do with it, do you keep it patched and clear of crud, how are you connecting to the internet?

Without knowing anything about your system,i can only suggest as kateB says also.

However,have a look here for some cleanup tools.What Antivirus are you using/What antispyware are you using ?

Some good info and downloads for you to try.
