You supplied zero specs so we have no idea what you're working with. If you have very little RAM, you shouldn't expect your system to perform well, & if you run crapware like McAfee, that just makes the situation worse. It's also possible your CPU is overheating & throttling back, or you may simply have too many useless apps loading in the background at startup. Everything at this point is just a guess because you've given us very little to go on.

If you want to now the basic specs of your computer, hold down the Windows key and the Pause-Break key at the same time or right-click on My Computer and select properties. If you want to speed up your computer defragment your computer once in a while, clean up the Registry using CCleaner, and please get rid of McAfee.
