There are a few possibilities as to why this is happening. But it looks like you still have WinXP which, unless it's been replaced, could indicate that you still have the original hard drive from when you originally purchased it? (Correct me if I'm wrong!)

Long story short, a failing hard drive will create all of the signs and symptoms you described in your OP.

There are several ways you can check the condition of your Hard Drive, see the link below...

Be sure to stop back and let us know if this is the case or not.

Go to a bandwidth test site and see what your download and upload speeds are and post back. Just click "Begin test" don't do the free "start now".

-Are you downloading movies or music through a program that runs when the computer starts?
-is it slow just when online?
-what web browser(s) are you using? Do they have a lot of toolbars?
-there is a ton of malware going around currently, have you scanned for malware with something like malwarebytes, uncheck the real time trial on install?

To err is human but to really screw things up, you need a computer!
