The next step is to get rid of startup crap you don't need and services you aren't using. The easiest way to monitor startup items is by using Windows Defender. Go to Tools > Software Explorer > Startup Programs and remove anything that you don't need. You may have to do a google search to see what everything is.
For services, click the Start Menu > Run > type 'service.msc' and then use the interface to disable services that you don't need. However, be careful as some are integral to the system and should not be shut off. I recommend using this guide: http://www.theeldergeek.com/services_guide.htm
And last but not least, you can adjust the performance settings on your computer. Right click 'My Computer' > Advanced Tab > Performance Settings > Adjust for best performance. You can also click the advanced tab here and increase your virtual memory, a portion of your hard drive that you designate to act as RAM.
Hope this helps; let me know if you have any problems.
