    This isn't really the best group for this, sounds like a software problem. I
    would start by trying a spyware removal program and a virus scanner then go
    from there.

    Usually should be 20 seconds. Check with the maker.

    644MHZ with XP, good luck, I am surprised that the thing has not been slow
    the whole time. Go online and download system mechanic and go through all
    their optimization stuff. I personally feel that over time systems collect
    garbage from everywhere and need to be re-imaged, that is wipe everything
    out and start over. I you do decide to do that install windows 2000 and
    enjoy a much faster system.

    Given 256MB or more RAM, 500MHz is actually enough for XP to run
    smoothly.
    My experience has been that windows 2000 is slower, especially on boot
    and shutdown, but that may depend on the way it is used (e.g. in a
    domain).
