Install a system Maintenance and Optimization program for your PC.
Every time you operate your PC, such as installing/uninstalling a program , there will be changes to your system registry. the registry will become clogged with several hundred operation without any maintenance! A clogged registry results in slow computer that freezes and crashes frequently! If you want to speed up your computer, try to install maintenance program. I am personally using Glary Utilities Free. I think it's good enough. Maybe you can have a reference too on the product site: www.glaryutilities.com

That I exist is a perpetual surprise which is life

I agree that you should definitely scan for malware, If your free of it. Clear your Windows cache files, this is your temporary file. It can grow up to a large volume and stop your computer from using RAM properly. In a sense slow it down by preventing it from using free space.Here is how:

1. Quit Internet Explorer, Firefox, or any other web browser
2. Click Start, click "Control Panel", and then double-click "Internet Options".
3. On the General tab, click "Delete Files" under Temporary Internet Files.
4. In the Delete Files dialog box, click to select the "Delete all offline content" check box , and then click OK.
5. Click OK.

Manage your startups. Your excess CPU usage is due to too many programs running in the background. You can cut these to barebones by alter your msconfig. Here is how:

1. Open your Start menu.
2. Click Run
3. In the command screen type "msconfig.exe"
4. In the "system configuration utility",click either "service" or "startup" tab
5. Uncheck all programs that your are no longer using.
6. Click "OK"

Other great tip is increasing your virtual memory to simulate more RAM.

Hope this helps
