When was the last time you ran a full scan?

When was the last time you cleaned the computer using its disk cleanup tools.

When was the last time you installed updates for the hardware?

How old is it and how full is your HDD?

How much ram is being used while the computer is running? How about the CPU?

Simply press the Start button and type in disk cleanup on the search bar. Run that.

For CPU and RAM usage open your task manager. Press Control + Alt+ Delete

For your drivers you will need to head to your manufacturer's website to install them. If your drivers have not been updated they can cause your performance to suffer. Install the latest versions from their website.

And your RAM?

Have you also tried using the cleaning tools? Also updated your computer to the latest hardware? If so do you see any change in performance?

How old is the computer anyway?

From the looks of it your computer should be ok. Just make sure all drivers are up to date and you have installed the latest updates. Clean it often too. RAM is your memory by the way.
