How can I figure out why my MacBook Pro is running so slow, and what can I do about it?

I've got a year-old MacBook Pro (2.5 ghz i5, 4GB) that has lately been running ridiculously slow. I don't have that many things running at any given time, but even when nothing is running, launching an app or switching windows takes way longer than it should.
I'm from a Windows background and this is my first Mac, so I don't really know what the Mac equivalents to CCleaner are, or even where I need to be looking for culprits. 500 GB hard drive, 200 GB is free. Any ideas?
