Well I just recently reformatted my computer due to various reasons, anyway, when I scroll down a page or move program boxes over, it is very sluggish. Like you would find in Safe Mode moving it. I went to Add and Remove programs and nothing is there, so is there things I need to re-install to make it back to normal speed? Thanks for the help and please close my other topic in HJT and Malware section.

If it boots...take a look in Event Viewer and see if there are errors indicating a drive problem.

Is XP properly updated? A firewall in place? AV program and malware defenses in place?

Go to Start...Run...and type in "compmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) - check the Event Viewer (particularly the System and Application logs) and the Device Manager to see if there's any red x's or yellow !'s there.
