My computer using Windows XP operating system has become extremely slow. It takes around 30 seconds to bring up Microsoft WORD and EXCEL. It is similarly slow on my other programs. I frequently run Spy-Bot and Ad-Aware which have detected no problems.

On turning on my computer, it takes about 2 minutes for Windows XP to start up and no MS audio is heard during the start up phase. Audio is working on other programs, however, such as MS Windows.

These difficulties have only recently appeared and I would appreciate any help in rectifying them. Do I need to start from scratch and format my HD and install a new Windows XP? I would prefer not to since I have many programs that would need to be installed.
