This is my fathers XP process list, I apologize for the image quality. He needs to know what applications/processes he can stop (that he does not need) in the hopes of making his suddenly very slow XP install be normal again. I had him run malwarebytes and it did not find anything so I'm hoping this is the route to take.

Thank You in advance.

That is not the process list. That lists services, which are not responsible for a slow machine since they only use CPU when performing a task. They do use memory, however.

The actual process list is a better place to start looking for problems. You can look them up and decide which you want to keep:
