So my MacBook Pro with OS Snow Leopard 10.7.3 has been running ver slowly lately. Whenever I open about 7-10 tabs on Safari at the same time, a lot of time Safari freezes for a bit. In addition, opening Word, PowerPoint, and Excel is slow too. Is there anything I can do to speed up my computer a bit ?

I would start here:

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

How much RAM do you have? And are you running Snow Leopard 10.6 or Lion 10.7?

Does that mean you went through the list in that link? If so, what did you learn?
