I think I'd start with memory diagnostics test.

Then if memory was OK and the correct amount, I'd try booting to safe mode and do a try a restore point.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

First try cleaning out your system. In your browser, clean out your internet history, cookies, saved web pages, etc. (Internet Explorer -> File>Internet Options>Delete, select all that apply, and click delete.)(In FireFox -> Tools>Clear Recent History, and select Everything and OK.) Clean out your Recycle Bin. Clean out deleted emails folder in your mail client. Uninstall programs you do not use. Run Disk Clean Up and then Disk Defragment. Restart your computer. If it is still slow, Open msconfig and go to Start tab and uncheck all except MS and antivirus program. Apply & OK and then restart the system again.
This should speed up most slow computers, just keep up regular maintenance and try setting your browser to keep history for only a day or two and to delete cookies when closing your browser.
System restore as mentioned above will fix most serious software issues.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
