My computer has seemed to slow down. It's slow when stating-up and slow when shutting down. Most of the time I never even shut it off. I noticed a real slow down when I upgraded from Office 2001 to Office 2007. Any ideas as how to speed it back up?

I have an emahine with a CD-W, a DVD, a 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, a 2 GHz Pentium 4, 60 GB hard Drive, 512 DDR Ram, 6 USB ports, an external DVD burner and a 500 GB external Hard Drive.

I would also recommend that you turn off your computer when not in use for some time. This action clears all the caches and resets some components, not to mention saves electricity.
