My pc is too slow, and the fans are running in a short time. Buying a ssd and ram can certainly solve these problems?

You've got some of what I'd consider "crapware" on there and removing it might help but, yeah, RAM and SSD will drastically improve things. Perhaps someone else may spot other issues.

According to Everymac.com you can put 16GB of RAM in there, if you so desire. Also, your SATA bus speed is 6GB/s so be sure your new SSD is capable of that (most are).

"crapware" for example?
I was thinking for Sandisk plus ssd 480gb and crucial ram 16gb.
