The computer I am working on is running very slowly, printing, opening files, you name its slower than molasses.

System specs:
AMD Duron 1000Mhz
512 SDRAM
40gb, 5400 HD with XP Home installed
80, 7200 Data drive
DSL Internet Service

I have already post a Hijack This log in the security forum and the replies say there is nothing wrong. Could it be the slow HD installed or should I be looking elswhere?

yes, defrag is scheduled to every week.

Also, running Norton Anti Virus and it auto runs scans every week on Fri night. CHecked log today and its clean, no viruses detected.

Just a thought,but have you thought about disabling startup items that you don't need to start on bootup.Having too much stuff in there can slow your system down dramatically.The only things I allow to start on bootup on my machine are my anti virus and firewall.

Also go here:http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm
and check out the service configurations,there are a lot of services that you can disable to help your system run better and faster
