Check your devices in Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter). Look for any "!", "?" or "X" symbols.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

You should update the system drivers, I use http://www.radarsync.com/ for this. Then you will need to use the defrag tool I mentioned earlier set to optimize and defrag.

Alan.

How large is the partition with you OS on it, and how much free space does it have?

You need to have at least 15% free space for swap space on the hdd. 15% or that 37.2GB is 5.58GB, this could easily cause you computers slowness. See if there are any files in that partition that can be moved to the second partition. You can transfer files very simply by right clicking on Start and the Explore. When it opens click on your C: drive, you can click and drab files from the C: drive to the other partition. Notice that when the file that you are moving is place over the other file locations in the left side it will highlight in blue, move the file down till the second partition is highlighted and take your finger of of the mouse button. You will the need to go back to the C: drive and delete the file from there.
