All Windows 7 machines are still in warranty. Why not let HP hear about this?

The possibilities:
1. your connection with the Internet is too slow
2. your PC has not enough RAM
3. your PC has a too slow CPU
4. your PC is slowed down by malware and unnecessary background programs.

The cure for #1 is a faster Internet connection.
The cure for #2 and #3 is a hardware upgrade.
The cure for #4 is a good cleanup by anti-virus, anti-malware and having a very good look at what's running.
