There are a few things you can try first.

I would suggest the following:

CCleaner Free
Editing MSConfig
Clearing the Startup folder

After that, if you're not happy with the results, or are unsure of something, post back here

Nab the toolbox found here > PC Cleanup Toolbox
Follow the directions and see if that gives the old gal a kick in the pants.
