I don't see anything glaringly wrong. The video card is a little old, but that wouldn't cause the computer to slow outside of games or other graphics intense programs.
Of course, that's assuming everything is working correctly. Have you run any benchmarking or diagnostics?
If not, I would suggest running Prime95 and Real Temp for at least an hour and looking at the hgihest temperature the CPU reaches. While I don't expect heat to be an issue, it's something that can be checked quickly.
After that, download MemTest86+ from memtest.org, burn the ISO image to a CD and then boot from it (like you did to install Windows). Let that run overnight or through at least 7 passes. That will let you know if the memory is good.
The main culprit of freezing/slowness would be the RAM, so start with that.
