Hi all -

I ran CCleaner and MBAM - the former cleaned some stuff, and the latter found nothing.

The computer is indeed running faster, though - and I am 80% sure the culprit was one of the things in the startup group. All those stupid Apple / Adobe updaters that want to run constantly. Turning those off seems to have made it peppier again.

Thanks, everyone!
