I have a Windows XP computer with a 1.9 GHz processor, 512 megs of RAM, fully checked for spyware, viruses, and the like, that as time goes on is getting slower, and slower, and slower. It should be fully capable of handling all the programs I'm throwing at it (no resource intensive videogames), yet at times it barely seems capable of handling the OS. I know it shouldn't be behaving this way, because in the past it performed normally. What can I do to get it back up to speed? (Again, it's fully checked for spyware, malware, viruses, etc..) Thanks!
