Netbook running a little slow

Hey guys, I've had my HP Mini 2140, and it's been excellent. I've had it for like almost 6 weeks now, and have 116GB free out of 149GB in in hard drive. Now, it's been running a tad slow. Like, for example, when typing, I will type something, and it stalls for a couple of seconds, and then all of the text suddenly comes up typed all at once.. know what I mean? It's just small things, also, like when i put the mouse pointer on a button, it takes a second or two to highlight it, then i click it. It just stalls a little bit.. and it gets annoying. Any reason why? Do I have too many programs on it? Right now, I have the following installed:
iTunes, Skype, Windows Live, Yahoo Messenger, xvid, winzip, quicktime, Firefox, and Kaspersky for Internet Security.
I also have about 5GB of music, and about 11GB of tv shows.
Should I rid my netbook of any of this? Or is there another method in order to get it running quicker?
