    a couple of thoughts, 768mb is little ram for XP Pro, and two, have you done a virus/malware scan recently? or a complete maintenance program?, if it was working just fine and then started doing this slowdown, that can be a sign of a HDD that is about to go out. try running disk check, and download a program called speedfan @
    it has a feature that will check the health of your hard drive.

    did it just start doing this? or did you discover the slowdown when you tried to play games?
    did you run disk check?
