This isn't the right place, but a bit of help is always welcome :)

Windows XP, as with most other Windows' has the irritating habit of 
pilling up junk in the registry, and other places. My first check is 
always to check for viruses - update the virus definitions, and scan the 
PC thoroughly, do a scan disk & defrag, and then try a registry repair 
tool. Other than that, a re installation  is your best bet.

Good luck
