    How to know computer is working slow?

    I know that each file takes different time to execute means excel sheet and MS-word files takes different time to execute. I have done following things to speed up my PC:
    1. Protect PC with antivirus
    2.Do Disk Cleanup time to time
    3.Defragment
    4.Delete cookies daily

    And now interested to know my PC's speed. There is any tool or software that help to know speed of computer.

    You might want to check out some benchmarking software. I use Passmark to get an idea of where my PC stands alone along with similar & slightly more high-end models.

    Scan your computer daily with the strong antivirus. Also delete the cookies, forms, history from IE or any other browser you are using.

    Keep the registry clean, that makes a lot of difference. In addition to what Rahul mentioned in the OP.

    Edit: Lol forgot to mention, I know few people who would format and reload every thing every three or four months to keep their PC fast.
