Well- bring up the task manager- and tell us all what is taking all the CPU up. Then post it's name on here. Also- what antivirus do you have?

13gb of free space wouldnt be the cause of lagging, thats still enough room. Press CTRL + ALT + DEL and see how many processes are running.

I usualy have about 2 GB of free space- and my computer is just as fast as it is with 6gb. As long as you defragment every now and then- you are fine.
