This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing 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.
