    Bit of an obvious thing to say but..have you run an anti virus scan? Many worms and trojans will eat into your resources like wildfire making it slower than a snail.

    I recommend reformatting it, but backup all your files first, make sure you have all the CD's and product keys, and make sure you can get drivers for the hardware

    Default You can install Windows XP again...

    Like i said... You can install Windows XP again... it will boost your PC...
    But i recomend you format your PC and use Linux. Its much better and you will even forget windows.

    Most likely, the trojan you deleted wasn't completely removed, it probably managed to copy itself or something, i think the only option now is to format the whole computer and start again =/ be more careful next time though.

    Get my idea... Use imaging - create an image of your HDD (C drive) when it's on it's best , and then whenever your PC is crappy , just restore it in 5 min... : )
    btw , I use Acronis True Image , does the work A+ .
