To begin with, Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft. Because of this, XP is a very vulnerable system now. I would recommend switching to Windows 7 or 8.1. Second, you will need to use programs such as disk defragmenter and disk cleaner to regain some speed. Download and install the program Advanced System Care from IOBit technologies. This program works wonders for me. Best of luck to you.

Really? CCleaner tried to ruin my PC once. Perhaps a virus was downloaded with it.

That's highly possible as many sites are loaded with things that piggy back on downloads. The only totally safe way to download CCleaner is through Cnet or https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner

Unistall unneeded programs, turn off unneeded startup programs, try Ccleaner.

If it's running XP, it's probably running on really old hardware. Upgrading the operating system won't do it any help. I believe it's time to get a new computer. You could upgrade by adding more ram. But it's hardly worth it and I don't suggest it since it'll be bottle necked by old hardware. The more recent processors won't fit into your old motherboard socket.

The best you can do now has already been mentioned. Clean your registry, defragment your hard drive, run a malwarebyte scan, and keep your drivers up to date.

Since you have XP, chances are that your computer is too old. I would advice upgrading to a newer one, but if you don't want to, try My suggestion. Just note that your computer won't run as fast as a newer one, so don't expect it to run blazing fast.
