please dont laugh when i tell you that i'm running windows XP Pro on a pentium 2 at 233 mhz. Its just for storing all my files on. (its going in the basement with no screen after i fix this) I boot up and the thing sits there slow as molasses. Task manager says svchost is using all my processor.....ness. What is this and is there a solution. O by the way, its a fresh intsll of windows from yesterday and i didnt open internet explorer at all on it, so theres no source of infection yet. (I'm on my good one now).

I have XP Pro running on a K6/2-400 CPU. Here's a couple of tweaks that help speed things up:
In System Properties performance settings, click "custom" snd uncheck all of the boxes except the one for "Use drop shadows...".
In Desktop Properties themes, use "Windows Classic" theme.
