Cleaning the registry probably won't do much. You need to

a) Look for installed programs that are "always on" that may be causing the slowdown

b) Check your power settings (if you are on a laptop) to ensure you are not on Power Saver

c) Defragment your hard drive

What are the specs of you computer?

I'd also do scan for viruses, Mailware and to be paranoid, rootkits

for the Mailware I'd use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (http://www.malwarebytes.org/), use the free version

and even though it is in beta, Malwarbytes' have a free anti-rootkit scanner http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/mbar/

and for anti-virus, as well as doing a scan with the AV installed, maybe do a scan with an online AV scanner? Something like the ESET Online Scanner. http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner/

Odd. Your computer is pretty strong, spec wise.

For what it is worth, I run an i5 with 4GB of RAM which I thought was very powerful but still would freeze often. I then realize that it was because I kept running out of RAM. You may be in the same situation -- are you running 32-bit or 64-bit?
