Everything you do on your computer leaves residues known as temp files. A small amount of temp files doesn't pose a threat. However, a greater amount of temp files can slow down your computer.
Mac OS tries to clean them by itself. However, a dedicated application like CCleaner for Mac, MacBooster (which have a user-friendly interface which are one of the best, according to users), will be more efficient. Make sure to clean the temp files on a weekly basis.

One reason for the computer running slow issue can be the presence of virus(es) and other types of malicious software. Viruses can make your computer very slow, as they are designed to harm you in every possible way (e.g. they can prevent you from browsing the net with the speed you pay for, to play games, videos, etc.). The solution is to remove them, however, there are some viruses which may bypass your antivirus.
Every program you install (or uninstall) in your computer, modifies the registry. The registry is a vast library of system settings - settings that can sometimes lead to blue screens and other instabilities. Even when programs are uninstalled, their registry settings can stay behind.
The settings are useless to the daily operation of your PC, but they can cause conflicts and errors. Your computer continues scanning these error-ridden registry entries, thus slowing everything down. As a result of this, your computer crashes.
Cleaning the registry manually is not an easy task. Luckily, software which can clean the registry instead of you and fix a slow computer do exist.
One of the reasons why computer is slow is the number of programs running in the background. Some programs installed in your computer run in the background without your knowledge and they occupy significant amount of the computer's RAM memory, which is one of the main reasons why your computer is running slowly. By closing some programs, you will release more of the computer's RAM memory and increase its speed.
Animated pointers and high-resolution images may look nice, but they can also slow down your computer. The animations and images occupy the computer's RAM every time you start your PC and as a result there is less processing power available for other more important tasks.
So, if your desktop computer or laptop is running really slow, try to avoid using animated pointers, animated backgrounds and other third-party widgets so that you have more available memory for other more important tasks.
Maybe your computer is slow due to a lack of hard drive space. So if you don't have enough space in the hard drive, and your desktop computer or laptop is running really slow, consider removing the files you don't need, in order to free up hard drive space.
