You could try defragging the hard drive.
Go to Start/computer/right click C drive/ Properties/defrag. It could take an hour or more.

Or Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Defrag.

What OS are you running.

Anti-Virus may be doing a auto scan of your PC, if its only a single CPU it will stop other things working until its stopped, or it will slow things from loading
