is it legal version of windows 7?
if yes, you could try running an anti-malware scan (both anti-virus and anti-spyware, with anti-rootkit scan)?
additionally, check msconfig for unwanted services running at startup and disable them.

when and how does it slow down? for example: explorer starts crawling when opening control panel.
what softwares do you run in the background?
have you connected any new device lately?
are you up to date with windows updates, anti malware software updates?
just eliminating possible causes.

did you clean up the temporary files? sometimes they pile up and slows down the system.
is your hdd defragmented?
how do you allocate your system's virtual memory? you can see it from "Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System" > "advanced system settings" > "advanced" tab > "performance" > performance "settings" > "advanced" then virtual memory. is it dynamically managed("system managed file" selected) or both upper and lower limits are same? edit: is the pagefile in the o.s. drive (usually c:)  or in a different partition/drive?
how old is your anti virus software?

windows temporary files cleaned just now, same with the system defragmentation and the virtual memory thing thats something like the dynamic thing ie both the upper and lower limits ain't the same. :(  the defrag took near about 6 hours. but everything's working fine in the safe mode

when did you notice that windows is slow? i mean, what were you doing on your pc when it started?
does your pc act normaly fast is safe mode?
is the inside of your pc clean?
are all the components connected properly e.g. ram, sata sonnector, power connectors etc?
are your device drivers (mobo, gfx card etc) up to date?
how old is your antivirus (and which brand)? sometimes old av or high priority background scanning slows systems down.
btw, by services i didn't mean just antivirus. that includes windows' own background services. to open it, type services.msc in the search box in start menu and when the filename comes up, click it to open services list.
