Sounds like you are infected, start with this.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

If it won't run, rename the downloaded mbam-setup.exe file to mb.exe to help work around certain malware that will block it from being run.
If it still will not run.
1: Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall Malwarebytes.
Next redownload Malwarebytes but rename it before you download it to your desktop. As you are in the process of downloading when you get to the point that the "enter name of file to save to" box appears, in the "filename" slot, rename mbam-setup.exe to something.exe, then click Save.
If it installed but will not run, navigate to this folder:
2: C:\Programs Files\Malwarebytes' AntiMalware
At the top of the page, Tools > Folder Options > View, click > Show hidden files and folders and untick > Hide extensions for known file types.
Rename all the .exe files in the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder and try to run it again.
When it opens, update 1st.
If it won't update after installing, update manually.

I also think it is probably some type of malware. I use Webroot AntiVirus with Spysweeper , I believe they still have a free online scanner that does not need to be installed, but you might have to buy it to use the remove features (but you would know).
I would not use a 'speed your computer up' site since I would not trust them with that much control over my computer, especially a free site... What do they get out of it??

Another thought... How much RAM do you have? Newer programs use a lot more RAM than they did when your computer was new. Especially, new versions of internet browsers, new versions of/some brands virus(etc) software, photo editing software, and anything to do with video. If you have 500Meg or less, try 1 Gig RAM (XP runs best on 1-2 Gigs RAM with new software)
If you have enough RAM and most programs are shut down (task manager), AND you have no hardware issues (device manager). You might consider backing up and reinstalling Windows (just remember you will need to reinstall all of those updates you did over time).

After you are sure it is clean, look into your memory, Not enough memory is a leading cause of slow performance after junk build up and nasty-ware. XP is best with 1Gig or more.
