background programs

How do I find out what background programs are running? My desktop is critically slow and i think somthing is running in the background. I have virus scanned it to death with no joy. I almost seems like it's looping. I'm running XP.

Re: background programs

Here is the link to HP document that helps you not only to improve the system performance but also helps you with the information on how to find and stop programs running in the back ground:
