There are multiple reasons why this could happen:
1: When was the last time you restarted your computer? A good restart usually brings the speed back.
2: As you install more programs, they create startup entries and services that run automatically and can make your computer VERY slow. You can disable most of these through task manager/services. Or consider installing more RAM.
3: How old is your hard drive and is it getting enough power? This is another great cause and can cause slow opening of files and unstability.
Why is your computer so slow all of a sudden?
If your computer has at least 4 GB RAM, Internet Security software and PC cleaner software, It will never get slow.
There are so much things to make it faster like restarting it, uninstalling unused applications, deleting files, defragmentation, cleaning the inside of the PC, checking for viruses, or lastly backing up everything then reinstalling windows.
