Answers :

Time to do some routine maintenance, such as cleaning out the temp files, removing unnecessary startups, etc. See helpful articles here and here. I also recommend you run a scan for malware by following the first four steps of these protocols.
\015\012Then, if you're still experiencing sluggish performance, evalutate carefully the use of resources by your AV or Internet Security software. (You can use Process Explorer or the task manager to help with this, or see AV comparatives for help with the effects on system performance.)
\015\012If you recently updated to IE8 and are/have been using Spybot or SpywareBlaster, or some other program that protects your browser by adding to the restricted sites and the hosts file, see this article and apply the workaround to delete the domains from your browser or hosts file. Also try running with no add-ons, as many older add-ons are not fully compatible with this browser and will slow it down to a painful degree.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

It can some times be that you registry has become rather full
\015\012There is a free program call ccleaner which will remove and clean files which are no longer in use.
\015\012After run WinASO registry Optimizer this will only do 10 corrections at a time but at least it free and you can at least try it
\015\012I found it helped
