iMac a little slow. Safari REALLY slow

Ok my imac has been running a little slow lately. My safari is really slow. not my isp just safari. When i load it, it seems to always get the pinwheel for 5-10 seconds then loads then sometimes the pinwheel again. my imac is a little slow as well when i load programs. i still have plenty of HD space. any thoughts?
