Use MS config to stop unnecessary services, (google them to see what's needed.) Uninstall bloat-ware. Dump unnecessary files and defrag again.

That should help.

There's more to slowness than viruses.

Try checking for other forms of malware using Spybot Search & Destroy, AdAware, and Bazooka Adware and Spyware Scanner.

You might also be having problems with a corrupted registry, memory leaks, and/or broken software on your system. You may want to reinstall your OS and applications from scratch (after backing up important data).

It's possible you may be having some kind of hardware issue, such as RAM that is failing. Tools like HCI Design's MemTest for Windows may help you in this area.

There really isn't enough information in your question to be able to provide any kind of definitive answer, but hopefully I've given you some ideas about how to try to narrow down the problem.
