This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The question is vague, and can have multiple reasons for the slow response.

My first thought, in the past I have some bad experiences with Windows 7, after installing SP1 on some machines (not all) everything feels "slow", could this be happening to you ?

In that case, the only solution I can come up until now is reinstall the O.S.
