Nice double post.

Remove all antiviruses and install ONE. I recommend clamWIN or AVG. Both are free.
Also try running malwarebytes anti-malware and ccleaner as well as defrag several times.

This should help quite a bit.

Yes do what Foothead said, also remove things that you don't need (like trial software) and remove startup items (msconfig can be used to do this). Like if you have things like adobe updater and itunes (If you have an ipod) those usually have startup items, get rid of those.

You have no viruses. You just have a really crapped out registry, waaay too many startup programs, or a dying hard drive.

Did you do everything I posted?

May I suggest you defrag your computer, There are some tutorials explaining how to do this (Screenshots & Guides)

How to defrag on
Also using professional software would be highly recommended you can view the "Defrag Top 10 Programs" for some suggestions.

If you follow those tutorials or get some decent software it should seriously help improve your computer speed, similar to what it was when you first bought it.
