Have you run disk cleanup? Have you defraged lately? Download cCleaner and run it. Also configure it thru the option menu to run at startup.
You also may want ot turn off unused programs that load at startup.

You may have items running in the backgroud that are chewwing up your resources too. Be very careful what you turn off though. If you go into Admin Services to disable just set them to start manually, that way if you have a problem you can set them back to the orginial settings.
