My laptop works very slow

I've noticed that my laptop is running very slow. When I open new applications, it takes like 30 seconds for the application to open, that's very slow for me.
This strange behavior is recent, it worked fine a month ago.
I'm running Windows XP with service pack 2 and I've installed the latest updates from Microsoft.
What could be the problem here?

First, check if you have enough memory.
Uninstall stuff you don't need.
The anti-virus software is very demanding and it could be the cause for a slow computer.
Sometimes if you install a lot of applications, Windows starts to run slow and you have to reformat. This is something you should do every year anyway. After you do it, you'll notice a big speed increase.

I hope this helps.
