Is your computer running a bit too slow? There is a variety of things you can do to tune and speed it up such as the following.
1.) Download Malware bytes and do a full scan. Its free and is some of the best Malware Removal Software out there. Malware can really slow down your computer and is unsafe. You can have your personal information stolen.
2.) If you have the AntiVirus software Norton or McAffee remove that, they do not do a very good job in my opinion and they (Especially norton) really bog down a system. Even decent ones. Instead download one of the Anti Viruses, Microsoft Security Essentials, Avast or Avira all are free and do a fantastic Job. If you want a paid Antivirus, ESET NOD 32 is a great option.
3.) Unninstall all unnessesary programs that you don't want or need. Such as Trial software.
4.) Download and run CCleaner. It will remove all uneeded and temporary files that over time slow down your computer. After that is complete, run the registry scan and fix all the issues that it comes up with. After that click on Tools, click on startup and disable or delete the Startup programs that are not essetial to windows or your everyday computing. Startup programs slow down your computers loading time and it is best to have as few of those running as possible.
5.) Run the disk defragmenter in system tools uner the acessories folder in the start menu. You can also download Dfraggler and use that to defragment your harddrive.
6.) Run Windows update and install any critical or important updates
7.) Update your drivers
8.) If none of the following worked, there is a possibilty that a.) something is wrong with your hardware or b.) your computer is too old and either needs to be upgraded or you need a new one.
9.) As a last attempt to get things running back to normal, back up your data and reinstall windows.

Well there seems to be some complaints and confusion about the new Windows 8 home screen, so I'm gonna try my best to straighten things out.
First and foremost, Its optional, as it should be. The majority of PC users use their computer for 3 things, Web, email and Photos, and with the new Start Screen, its much easier to access these things. Why deal with the traditional desktop interface when the majority of people rarely use anything other than their web browser?
Also, from what I'm hearing, based on what kind of system you have, Touchscreen, tablet, Desktop etc. the Homescreen will automatically default to whichever layout is appropriate for the system. For example, If you have a desktop and you install windows 8 onto it, you will get the traditional desktop we're all used to, If you have a Touchscreen or tablet, you'll automatically get the Tile (Windows phone 7 like) Homescreen instead. Seems pretty straighforward. The powerusers and gamers can still use the classic desktop while Joe average can stick to the simple interface so he can access his email and web browser without having to deal with anything else.
Hope this straightens things out.
