All Windows PC's suffer from this problem and it's a result of the way that the operating system has been developed. Windows is designed to be easy to use and to be a productive and enjoyable experience for you but it has it's flaws and slow degradation of performance over time is one of them. It's been deliberately built in as a necessary consequence of all the features that make Windows such a popular system to work with.

Why does Windows get slower?
There are many factors that can reduce your computer to a crawl. Viruses, Trojans, worms and spyware are amongst the better known causes. Prevention and cure software for these kind of threats are now installed on most computers and most users appreciate that steps should be taken to avoid them. There are also some lesser known and understood causes of failing performance.
The Windows Registry
Every Windows PC has a database or Registry that lies at the very heart of the system. Few people know very much about it and even fewer are brave enough to mess with it even though Microsoft has provided you with the means to do it in a utility called regedit
The Registry in your PC contains information about all the hardware, drivers, users, security and lots more. In short the Registry contains all the system wide information about everything in your computer. The Registry makes it possible for applications to communicate with each other, for system components to be used from any application and for software that you install to integrate itself with the rest of the system.
The problem with the Registry
Having a system wide database to tie everything together gives you a lot of benefits and contributes greatly to the rich user experience that you get from a Windows PC. It also has the potential to completely wreck your system if something goes wrong.
The Registry is a single point of failure. If it goes down then your whole system goes with it. Everything that you install on your PC can potentially add things to the Registry and not everything is deleted from it when you uninstall them. This leads to an ever growing system database and errors can easily accumulate. This can lead to a slowing of performance, unexplained error messages and even crash your system. In extreme cases it can become unrecoverable and can only be fixed by wiping your hard disk and reloading the operating system.
In my opinion Microsoft has made this situation much worse than it might otherwise have been by consistently encouraging developers to use the Registry to store application specific data. In many cases it isn't necessary to do this and applications would be better off storing their data in local files.
As a developer myself I can tell you that the Windows Registry has often been more of an irritation to me than any real help with my projects and I generally avoid storing anything in it if I can.
How do I fix problems with my Windows Registry?
Microsoft provide you with a tool to edit the Registry. It's called Regedit and you can use it to modify the behavior of any part of your system for the better or worse. If you aren't a Windows expert then do not attempt to edit the Registry yourself. I develop applications for Windows and editing the Registry sends shivers down my back so unless you know what you're doing don't touch it.
Thankfully there are applications designed by Windows Registry experts that will do the job for you and I suggest that you get one and use it to restore your PC to it's former glory.
When I used this Registry Cleaner application to scan my registry it discovered hundreds of errors that needed to be fixed. I was surprised that there was so much rubbish in my registry. I wonder what yours is like?
