Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.

How much RAM do you have, and how much free space do you have on you hdd? If your hdd is too full you lose the swap space needed for it to navigate and will slow down when programs that require more resources than normal, this is exasperated with a low amount of RAM.
Another thing to check is if the computer is clean inside, look for accumulated dust on the CPU heat sink and fan assembly, if you see dust bunnies inside it is time to clean it out. Canned air from you local computer shop will work well for this. Also check to see if the grill for the air intake is clean.

"As mentioned in the topic above, I've already put new thermal goop on the CPU. (maybe I didn't put enough?)"
This is one time where less is more. You need just a small drop, spread thinly over the processor. Was the heatsink/tube reinstalled securely?
When it starts to slow down, open up Task Manager and see what all is running
