Reason : The reason many systems start running slow as more programs are
installed is because many operating systems start unnecessary
programs(or services as the case may be) while the computer starts. The
best example of this is starting the Printer and/or Wireless service
even when we may not use/have a printer &/or wireless
Solution : As i am acquainted with only Windows and Linux i can provide help on those.
1. In Windows XP/Vista/7/8
go to start menu right click my computer-> Manage-> services and applications -> services. <Caution>
2. Google the service names on Internet and see if they are needed by your system
3. Mostly people without printers can stop permanently the printer service (spoolsv.exe) service (u can start this when needed).
4. Stop all the unnecessary processes permanently.
5. start the processes if required by some programs.
For Linux go to system monitor and do the same as above.
In windows use antivirus such as avast(takes only two minutes to update and does not hog the computer down) along with a firewall such as ZoneAlarm(beginners) or Comodo (for advanced users)
these will keep the pc running free of viruses and malicious programs.
Use ccleaner to get rid of unwanted files.
Regularly defragment drives with tools such as Ultradefrag or Defraggler.
P.P.S. All these files for windows are regularly available for download with updates at www.filehippo.com.
You are Welcome.

I have a strong feeling that your computer has virus/malware - the usual reason why your computer speed is slower than usual. Try installing reputable free antivirus program to get rid of viruses out from your computer system such as AVG and AVAST.A free antivirus program is great, who does not want free right? However, they do not do a complete job. In case you need support optimizing your slow computer and/or getting your computer to be completely clean from harmful viruses, feel free to contact https://www.techienow.com/ -call 8889683244 :)
