Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete together and have a look under 'Processes' Tab and see if there is anything hogging the CPU. Report back.

On the Performance tab, what does it show the CPU usage as when you are doing nothing.

Also, can you tell us when you experience the slowness? All there time i.e open new windows, double clinking icons to open load programs etc? or is it just one particular aspect that is slow?
