mac`s are faster because they usually have less software in them compared to pc`s.
getting back to your problem, i`m assuming that your machine is due for some cleaning. there is alot of freeware on filehippo that you can start with.
download ccleaner as a start to clean up all your temp files from explorer, and it has some light registry cleaning stuff as well.
next, depending on how bad your system you should get a windows management program such as xp manager, vista manager, tune up utilities etc. this software is designed to tune your os to your needs and keep it functioning correctly. now these are not freeware and you will have to pay unless your into warez.
clean computers are fast computers!!!!
