Default Slow! Slow! Slow!!!!!!!!

Within the last two months, my computer been especially slow. After it boots up, it often takes up to 5-6 minutes to stop loading/ processing stuff before I can run any of my programs or surf the internet.

The worst part is that if I want to use my computer after its been idle for a while, I have to wait another 5 minutes for it to "get up to speed" and be ready to function.

Is this a problem with memory? Too many programs running?

Please help!
