    Try:

    - Reset the iPod. Nothing will be lost

    Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - Reset all settings

    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.

    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.

    - Restore from backup

    - Restore to factory settings/new iPod.

    That does not help me. Some apps are still slow and sometimes they freeze.

    So you still have the problems after restoring to factory settings/new iPod (not from backup)? If so there is nothing you can do.

    I don't want to reset it because I have important things on it. I don't want to delete them. Is there a way to save everything, and restore it?

    - The first two items in my first reply do not really remove data and other things.

    - Restoring from backup will make it like it was when the backup was made provided that all synced media like apps and music are in the iTunes library.

    - Restoring to factory settings/new iPod erases everything
