Default computer going a tad bit slow

For the past 2 weeks I have been reformatting my HDD and putting different versions of Windows on my computer (studying for computer class and bordem). The past few times I just did a quick format, cause I honestly don't want to wait for my 140GB partition to format. Any ways my computer seems slower on loading programs, and its really irritating me. I was thinking of using Acronis Disk Director or KillDisk to destroy my data and do a long format. Do you think this will help performance?

i dont see why this should slow up your pc, unless the hdd is on its way out. i would do what raffaz said and go from there
