    try this...

    hey dude....first off clear all the temp. cache and the temp folfer in ur windows directory as well as the cookies and the temp. internet file folder....then type "msconfig" in the "run" window and navigate ur way thru the startup tab and disable all the unecessary programs. And be sure to uninstall any unused programs/games which may be using up ur HD space. Try it..it may help.

    god dude
    systems are gonna get slower with use thats for sure
    apps today are very resource hungry
    so just run disk defragmenter on ur hdd regularly
    keep ur startup programs to minimum
    make sure uve uninstalled all nnecessary program
    use registry cleaner to get rid of unwanted entries
    this should get u started

    ok, remove "Norton Protected Recycle Bin", use standard recycle bin.

    stop indexing sevice if started.

    stop system restore on all drives.

    move your pagefile o other drive than ur primary drive, better give it a dedicated drive.
