Check to see if the disc is almost full -- I believe this leads Windows to shrink the virtual memory space leading to disc thrash and slow performance.

Solution is to download a program like Ccleaner or Easy Cleaner and clear out some clutter.

Another useful step is to add more RAM.

Either your hard disk is dying or your power supply is insufficient.
If you check the SMART parameters (with HD Tune for example) and copy them here we can tell if your hard disk is ok.

I would recommend you to back up your data as soon as you can. Your HDD is dying, man.

I couldn't agree more, she's gonna die on you, better be ahead and start shopping around for replacement while you still have time.
