Default Very Slow Downloading

I've done scan disk, spybot removal, defrag, etc......and I have a very slow
downloading speed. When I initially sign-on...it takes minutes to get
everything booted. When browsing, it's very slow. I have 28.6 gigs on Drive
C: and have used 5.32. Is there a way to pull a list of programs, etc...that
I could review to remove those taking up space, other than Add/remove
programs...looking for suggestions to improve performance....
