There's a whole multitude of reasons why a pc might start running slowly, anything from malware to hardware, ISP and router issues. Usually a slow pc means it will also run hot with the fans kicking in a lot. It is definitely in your interest to fix this/these issues because a hot-running CPU often means it's lifespan could be compromised.
I am not qualified to offer you any further assistance as I am only a rookie here, but I'm sure some of the experts will be along shortly to try to help.

- Your HD could be failing. Run GSmartControl and tell us how many pink/red lines (except for "Temperature") show up in the "Attributes" tab.
Indeed, this is solid advice, a failing HDD would certainly make a machine slow to a crawl.
