-If your computer has not been rebooted recently, make sure you reboot it before following any of the steps below.

-Delete temp files. To do that start Run by pressing the windows button & R and type in " %temp% " and click Ok. Then delete all the files in that folder if some files can't be deleted, just skip those.

-Verify that your hard drive has at least 200-500MB free space.

-Scan for virus using any antivirus program.

-Make sure that you have the latest drivers for your computer hardware, especially the latest video drivers.

-If you have done any of the above steps but your computer is still slow, try rebooting your computer again.

-If you had your computer for more than 2 years, you may need more memory. I suggest computers to have 1GB of RAM for 32-bit system and 2GB for a 64-bit system.

-Make sure your computer and processor is not overheating. If it is over heating clean your CPU case and fans as they might have some dust, dirt or hair.

Hope these steps help!

I recommend the steps that YellowFlash has provided. I think why you maybe having issues is the amount of ram your computer currently has. If any programs require a decent amount of ram to operate than your PC will run slow if this is the case. A 32 bit windows 7 can use up to 4gb of ram if your motherboard is capable and in my opinion 64 bit systems run best if you have at least 4gb or more installed. I had an old HP pavilion that had 512mb ram and after I installed an antivirus program it ran so slow. Soon found out it was because the PC did not have enough ram to run the antivirus program properly. So upgrading the ram should help especially if there are no viruses on you PC..
