Run Ccleaner click here both Clean and Registry (All on Default settings)
Download & Run Superantispyware click here
Reset IE to Default settings Tools> Internet Options> Advanced Tab> Reset Button.

And once you have done what rawprawn said.
If it is still sluggish Go to command prompt and type in ipconfig /flushdns it should tell you dns cache has been flushed if so reboot and see if it works any better.
