    Hello and welcome.

    First I would run a full updated scan using your Anti-Virus..

    Download and run a full scan using malwarebytes here is the link, and use the free version. Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download

    It this comes back clean then I would defrag, Disk cleanup, uninstall anything you really don't use, download CCleaner and use it about once every 2 months BUT do not use the registry cleaner this is where if you don't know what your doing you can cause a lot of problems.

    Go to Start and type in msconfig...
    -msconfig-png

    If you have too many things checked they will cause your system to be sluggish.
    Uncheck items you don't want to have opening at the start up.
