Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer.

Please take the time, to browse the New User Orientation forum, to help familiarize yourself with how the board works.

Also, don't forget to check out the Tutorials.
There's a lot of very useful information, in there.

Unless you are positive your machine is infected I would try other avenues first
First try the XP Home and Pro forum
and then the Am I Infected forum

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits

Garmanma's advice is very good, since it is not always malware that slows your computer down, but a lack of routine maintenance.
