Can a floppy disk slow down the speed on my computer?

My computer is very slow.

I'm not too sure what you mean. Your computer does not run off of a floppy disc. Certain older programs can be run from floppies but they are very slow and cumbersome. The only reason the floppy could be making your computer slow is if there was a virus on it affecting your computer.

A Floppy disk slows down a pc definitely. As the floppy disk uses a magnetic tape with less memory, it takes lots of time for the floppy drive to read the disk and the operating system itself takes some time to read, analyze and process the data stored in the floppy disk.

NO, the presence or absence of a floppy disc should have no impact on your computer's performance. Odds are, your computer's slowness is caused by something else.
