how to identify my pc`s speed problem

i have a vary critical speed reduction problem on my computer , my computer is working too slow for almost tow weeks now , at first i thought it must be a virus , so i installed an eset nod 32 updated anti virus and i full scanned my PC and it didn't work , then i de fragment all of my local disks and that didn't work either , i thought it might be a hard drive problem because every time i opened my task manager , my disk processes shows 85% to 100% while i'm not doing anything , so i scanned for bad sectors and found 8 and repaired them, so far no difference , my computer still working pretty slowly!! please , if anyone has a solution i would be grateful to know about!!

Worth a test: a new install of Windows from the DVD on a new hard disk.

if you reinstalled wait before doing anything

if this is a new install, wait a few days before doing anything. after a new install, the computer will be updating in the background and file indexing is also being done in the background. those will slow the computer down.
