There are a number of things that can cause your computer to run slower than it is supposed to.  Problems such as spyware, viruses, and a poor security system or the lack thereof can make your computer run like a snail. 

If you don't currently have an antivirus or strong security system on your computer, now is an ideal time to install one.  The security program will find the source of the issue and protect your PC from viruses.
However, sometimes your computer’s slowness is caused a lack of available memory, not by any spyware or malware.  In order to maximize the speed on your computer, you should try to delete programs you no longer need, clean up your registry if it is bloated, delete your cookies and temp files, and delete your Internet search history.

If malware and/or lack of internal memory are not the problem, perhaps you should check your hardware.  Have you updated your computer system recently?  If not, updating your PC could and should speed it up.
