Hardware does not 'get slower'.

Clean out the dust.
Reinstall the OS.
Check the health of the drive.

I know that was maybe done before, but absent any real problems, a 3 year old laptop should still run quite well. Certainly not "open a folder in a time of 1 minute"

Possibly your hard drive is dying.

Not necessarily. Could install Linux (I recommend Mint 17.1 Cinnamon as its very similar to Windows 7). If that's still slow, the HDD or mobo could be shot. HDDs are cheap and easy to replace but mobos are very expensive and generally not worth it.
