I think you need to look at what software and anti-virus you are running - a lot of it could be what I would describe as "bloatware" - ie. unnecessary software (HP tend to put a lot of this stuff on that is never likely to be needed) Also look at what is starting up at "startup" - use "msconfig" to select what starts up.

You could check in control panel "Performance Information & Tools" and make some adjustments from there if necessary.
