My laptop has become noticeably slower. It takes a long time to boot up and to have my outlook open. Also, sometimes when I close a screen, it slowly disappears from the top down to the bottom. Is it the hard drive or the motherboard that is failing? I have Windows XP.
I clean and defrag my laptop frequently. I run antivirus and malaware programs. This is not a virus. Can someone help me?

Please post the computer specs and antivirus or antimalware software being used. Launch task manager and go to process tab to check on the CPU and memory usage as your PC start lagging. Then check on the process tab.

I have AVG and malawarebytes for antivirus and malware. AVG runs always and I turn on malawarebytes when I want to use it.
The specs are: Gateway M680, intel processor 1.82 gigahertz, 782 Mhz, 1.0 gigabyte of ram. I am using Windows XP Pro.
