Type "msconfig" into "run" and disable all startup programs that are not needed.

Scan for malware with malwarebytes

Dump your antivirus if your looking for speed

We need to see what's installed and auto-loading, and if any obvious infection is present.

Go here and click the green icon to download and save HijackThis 2.0.2.

Close all open browser windows first, then install it its default location: C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis.

Start HijackThis, then click "Do a system scan and save a log file".

When the scan completes in 30 seconds or less, the log will appear.

Return here, then copy-and-paste the entire log here.

Part of the problem could be that Windows XP was never designed to run optimally on the i7 chipset. You'd probably see a performance improvement running Windows 7.
