First you may want to check your system resources by hitting Ctrl+Alt+Delete you should be able to figure out whether your using too much resources. What OS are you using? Vista tends to be slow. It could be a few things, if you download CCleaner you should check the registry for problems, and programs running at startup. Check your fragmentation by getting Defraggler. If it's under 30% i don't think that's causing your system to slow down, but it doesn't hurt to use it. (also there should be a boot time defrag on settings)

Also how much space do you have left on your hard drive? If your installation took a very long time chances are your hard drive might be showing signs of age or wear. It could also be you have a very persistent virus. But try the above first and if it doesn't show much improvement then it could be something with the hardware.

The best way is to start your computer in safe mode hitting F8, then choosing Safe Mode with Networking. Google, download and install Malwarebytes, it will check for malware. Google & download Avast as well. Install them one at a time, you can download them both at once if you want then just remember where it was downloaded to. Run the malwarebytes first then install and run Avast. It will tell you whether or not you got a virus. If not run CCleaner (you will wanna run CCleaner after the malware & virus check anyway for registry errors) and Defraggler.

If you have an extra hard drive laying around i would try that in the place of the current hard drive, that's if your a bit technical with the components.

Try this out http://www.hdtune.com/ check the S.M.A.R.T. info, run the error scan then try the benchmark. If you can post the benchmark results, hit Print Screen, paste on a program like paint then upload the picture to something like photobucket or facebook then post it here.

You got a blue screen while doing the test? Hmmm.. well it's possible your hard drive might be going bad then.. although it could still be something else.. do you remember what the test was showing? Generally 30MB/sec or more is ideal.. especially if your hard drive is SATA. What was the average speed before the crash?
