How long has it been slow? Do you have any system restore points back when it worked smoothly? If so try to set it back to that date. You may also want to try Chkdsk/f this will run a test at startup and may fix some problems
Go to START
then RUN
type CMD
a black command box will open then type: Chkdsk/f
it will ask you if you want to run the test on the next startup type Y for yes hit enter
next line type EXIT the box will close
restart your computer and the test will run on start up

I'd suggest taking a look in Event Viewer (for errors), looking for clues to what requires attention.

What is the Event Viewer, and Should I Care - Ask Leo! - http://ask-leo.com/what_is_the_event_viewe...uld_i_care.html

One or more of the following may be useful:

10 Reasons Why Your Computer Runs Slow - - http://www.bestsecuritytips.com/xfsection+...rticleid+43.htm

Slow Computer - http://www.theeldergeek.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=22278

As always, malware should also be considered and eliminated by actions on your part.
