Add more RAM (Random Access Memory) 

Another way to fix a slow computer is to get more RAM. In case when you try to work on multiple Windows applications at the same time such as the Internet, MS Word, and Email, your system has a minor stroke when switching between them. This is because you don’t have enough RAM and maybe it is time to upgrade your RAM. After that, your computer would most probably run faster.

Switch to SSD

Again if possible go for an SSD that most probably 50% speedup your PC, and this is my personal experience, SSD is much faster than HDD, Here how

An SSD has access speed of 35 to 100 microseconds, almost 100 times faster than traditional mechanical HDD. This means increased read/write rate, faster loading of applications and decreased booting time.

SSD

Also try to vacuum out the dust to fix a slow computer. Yes, the dust sucks into your system through the cooling fan resulting in clogging airflow. However, the airflow is very important to keep your system and CPU temperature down. If your PC overheats, its performance will slow down.
