Installing and uninstalling software, over a period of time, will result in your Registry being clogged up with old remnants that aren't correctly uninstalled when you remove software from your system. A similar process can occur with your hard drive. When you install software, then uninstall or simply move files around your system, you might find that accessing files takes longer each time you attempt to launch an application.
One solution is to defragment your drive, which will rearrange the contents of your drive so they are in one continuous block. It means applications launch faster and your system boots more quickly. IObit Defrag 1.1 is a beta version of a forthcoming free defragmentation tool. Other options include Diskeeper 2007, OO Defrag 8.5 or the free and popular Auslogic Disk Defrag 1.1.
