Make sure all your air vents are clear of dust and fluff.if so you will have to clean inside as well.To many programs running at start up.Anti-virus running at start up.Have you ran all your security programs.Give us a list of all security programs that you have installed.Try a defrag.Run C Cleaner to get rid of the crap.Try msconfig to see see how many programs that you have running at start up.

If still running slow. You could try this free optimizer.It will only repair 10 items at a time but you can run it as often as you like.It also has a registry defrag with it.And does an automatic back up.It could take a while depending what it finds but your computer will run faster after here
