Snow Leopard Performance Issues

I installed Snow Leopard recently and have had some really annoying performance issues/ hang ups when running multiple applications. I had no problems before and activity monitor isn't showing anything out of the ordinary.

2.4gz Intel Core 2 Duo with 2gb 667 mhz ddrs sdram
Late 2008 macbook

Like I said, I've never had any performance issues before this and now I'm getting frequent hang ups when multi-tasking. By hang ups I mean the little spinning wheel pops up and I can't do anything.

Any suggestions?

if you haven't, clean install instead of upgrade

How would I go about doing that? I have the snow leopard install as a .dmg image saved to an external hard drive. Right now I'm running both 10.6 and Windows 7 via bootcamp.
