  1. Make sure you have patched windows and defragmented the hard drive, in that order.

  3. If the HDD is a 5400 rpm you will get a good performance boost by going to a 7200rpm and a massive leap by going to a hybrid or SSD drive.

    Virus ?

    All the best Brett :)
  5. I'm going to venture heat as a possible issue here. At about a year old, I would think a thorough cleaning of the heatsink(s) would be about due. You can check your temps using a program like CoreTemp - if over 80C then I will recommend disassembly and physical cleaning.
    Just another possibility
