How Can I Make My Computer Faster?

My computer is two years old and it's running pretty slow, I want it to run faster.
I think I have too many applications installed, for example when I click on the Firefox icon to open it, I have to wait like 20 seconds before the browser completely loads.
Same thing happens with Explorer.
Is there something I can do to make my computer run faster?

I suggest you take a look at msconfig/Startup and see what's is currently running. This way you can turn an application off from the startup, that may be slowing down your computer.
Try defragmenting your hard drive.
Delete all your temporary files.
Sometimes, moving a folder with lots of files somewhere else than on your desktop can speed up your machine.
It may also be a spyware problem. Use Spybot to clean your computer from any kind of spyware.
It is recommended that you clean and fix your Registry.
You can also try restoring your computer to a previous state, it works sometimes.
