    I have Windows 2000 Pro installed on a computer.
    It has been running without problem. It has Norton
    Anti-virus installed on it. Virus defs are up-to-date
    and a full system scan came back clean. Real time
    file system protection is enabled.

    I installed Spybot search & destroy. Updated the defs
    and cleaned things out.

    I defragged the hard disk. I ensured no additional programs
    are starting up.

    Nothing I have been able to do has helped the recent lag
    that its expriencing. Slow application start ups, slow access
    (or not at all) to external websites. There has been NO change
    to the system. Operating fine, then boom. Lag.

    Any ideas ?

    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
