The OP tried doing a clean install on the drive ("erasing the disk beforehand"), and it was still slow.

I guess I wasn't clear. I'm not talking about malware or corruption. I'm talking about the OS and/or applications demanding more and more every year from the hardware - usually because every year the current hardware becomes faster or more capable. After 6 or 7 years of this incremental creep in the software, old hardware runs noticeably slow.
