Bring up your task manager and have a look for processes using high CPU.

You can do Start, then RUN, then type
msconfig
Then uncheck items in the Startup tab.
None are really needed for computer operation.

To find out what each Startup(or Process) item
does or means, and any recommendation as to if you should close the process:

Task List Programs
OR

The Process Library

Most Virus and Spyware scans are likely to work better in Windows Safe-Mode.

I use Hijackthis to check just what is running in the background (small and easy to download just google) easy to remove unwanted start-up programs but make sure you know just what it is your removing.
