I will need some more information
If it is a name brand system:
Make and Model
Age of the computer
Hard Drive Size, How much free space
If it is custom then I will need the following:
The CPU brand and model
The Motherboard brand and model
Ram amount and speed
Cd\Dvd rom interface IDE/ SATA
Hard Drive size and free space
Any cards in PCI slots
Any software installed\updated and driver updates done just before problem started
All this will help in determining a course of action to best correct the problem you are experiencing.

Please go to the "Malware Forum" link in my signature below and follow the instructions at the top
Especially the "You Must Read This Before Posting A HijackThis Log".
That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself.
If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty start a topic and post the requested logs in THAT forum.
Once the malware technicians have cleared out any infection and given you a clean bill of health, if the problem continues then feel free to post back here and we can investigate the problem even more.

Out of how much?
My C drive has 15 Gb of free space
What are your numbers from here: http://speedtest.net/
What browser/version do you use?

If so, your download speed looks fine, but the upload speed is unacceptable slow. I'd complain here to your ISP.
Now, since the download speed looks fine, your browsing should be fine too.
Go Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools, and click on Internet Explorer (no add-ons). Same slowness?
If so, see if Firefox will do better.

Also, is Malware enough to catch Spyware or do you recommend another application in addition to Malware?

If IE runs faster without add-ons, then you see what your problem is.
Disable all add-ons through Tools>Manage Add-ons.
Now, try to enable add-ons one-by-one, restarting IE every time, until you find the culprit.
Main suspects - toolbars (Google, Yahoo, and so on...).
I strongly advice, you install Firefox, so you have another browser to compare performance.

Just wanted to help clarify. Firefox and IE can both be used. Firefox is just an alternative to IE, a more secure and faster one in my opinion. You can use them interchangeably as often as you like. You can even have both open at the same time. You can change which one is your default at any time. It's not like you have to just pick one or the other.
You can find the link to download firefox for free in my signature. Sorry to butt in Broni.
