You have to list the system specs for the machine. Many reasons why it would run slow.

Storage space on the hdd has nothing to do with it. Unless you post the specs, we're dead in the water.

You need to install the motherboard chip set drivers and probably other drivers too. For help on where to download those drivers you must post the brand and FULL model of the computer or if custom, the motherboard.

also 512mb of ram is what most people consider the minimum for xp now days.
if this is what you have you need to choose all you added programs like anti-virus, very carefully. You need to keep it very light.

RUBAN, I suspect you have a bunch of extras in your start up menu. Lots of software writers think there's no possible way we could exist without their masterpiece so they put it in the start up menu. That usually only causes slow booting, but ... Take a look at what you have running in the background and be sure there aren't extras. Things you MUST have in order for Windows to be happy are listed @:

You didn't mention what anti-malware program(s) you have installed. Remember, you should only have 1 real-time running at a time. All others should be on-demand.

Go to your computer manufacturer's website and download your device drivers, starting with the chipset, then the video card, then the rest.

@ grasshopper: If I recall correctly, a HDD will noticeably run slower once it reaches 90% capacity. Although not the cause in this case, it still has something to do with speed.

@ Ed: 3/4 of your links are incomplete.
