Old Computer slowing down

I have a Compaq Presario CQ5600Y   2.8 GHz AMD Athlon II Dual Core Processor with 3 GB Ram and 500 GB hard drive, running Windows 7          It's probably 6 years old? and still working well. No problems with speed in start up or shut down, but it seems like lately it's been a little slow moving around on the Internet.  Should I just leave it alone, or is there something magic I can do to speed it up? Norton Antivirus says no problems and SuperAntiSpyware says everythings ok.  Any thoughts?

Thank you from Alaska

What a GREAT little program. Downloaded easily, ran faultlessly and speeded up my old computer extremely well.  Thank you so very much.
