Default Dead Slow Computer

My computer is dead slow. For example the My computer icon upon clicking would normally take a few seconds to open. In my computer it takes upto 3 minutes. All operations are dead slow. Can you tell me a software that would make my computer run at normal speed or high speed?

As the above post said

Run Adaware
System Cleanup
Run a Disk check
Defrag your comp

If all else fails then format.

Just like everyone said do a disk cleanup and defrag.

Here's a step by step instruction from Microsoft on how to optimize your computer's performance.
