[CentOS] OT - Windows slowdown?

I know this isn't the right forum for this (do I ever!), but you-all know so
much about everything I thought I'd ask.

About two months ago I resurrected my daughter's Compaq laptop (cracked
screen - replaced it) and ran an update on it.  It's running Windows XP, SP1
(I think), but since the update it has run about 1/3 as fast as it used to.

Does anyone know if there was a WXP update that killed performance on
laptops?  None of my other XP installs, SP1 or SP2, suffers from this.

(Actually, I should say "their other" 'cuz I don't use Windows unless I
can't avoid it, and then I try to do it on my WXP VM where it's still
relatively safe.)

Thanks.
