When initally installed windows 7 booted blazingly fast. Soon thereafter it slowed to dead slow. What is the problem?

This is usually the result of subsequent installs of new software that adds startup items as well as services that startup at boot time resulting in a slow boot and consequent demands on system resources that cause overall slow performance, you can use the clean boot article here How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7 to help determine which program(s) and or service(s) may be causing the issue. The article suggests adding the items back in half at a time, personally I would be a bit more selective and only add them back in if needed, or as required.

I had the same experience as JFT's. Tried to serach "clean boot" here, but found nothing. Would appreciate if Trouble could kindly advise how to conduct a clean boot under Windows 7 or refer to the relevant articles. Thanks a lot in advance.
