When intermittent bugs start slowing the system down noticeably, it's time for a reinstall. Don't need to fully format, but a periodic "full reinstall" without format makes Windows easier to tolerate. Nuke the C:\WINDOWS directory, boot from CD/DVD and install. Then just move the data like (My Documents, etc.) to the newly-created user directory.
