Here are some reasons why the system slows down and ways to avoid it happening to optimize the performance of the system.

Make sure the hardware is compatible with the OS you are running and that all hardware components are in good working order.
Use good anti-virus software to prevent virus attacks and if necessary use an anti-malware, anti-spyware and a registry cleaner program.
Turn off visual effects
Disabling some of the visual effects such as the way menus open and close, the way shadows are displayed and the transparent glass look can help speed up the computer.
Defragment the hard drive
Defragmentation organizes data that is fragmented which over works the system. Doing a scheduled defragmentation will enable the computer run more efficiently.
