I'd use your disk cleanup, ccleaner and defrag for starters.

How much free space on Windows partition? How large is Windows partition?

What changed...before this slowness started?

If your computer knowledge is a little less than average :
On what Hamlius has asked, to check this click on the windows start orb, ( Bottom Left of Screen ), then click on computer listed to the right, when this opens you will see your drives i:e c, d, etc underneath these you will see how much space it says is on them !
