Since the full model number it is not for sure (not posted) but if you are still running WinXP and that is what the PC came with - it could be a hardware problem or malware infection.

Most causes for slowness on a previously normal system is failing hardware - most likely the hard drive.

If the hard drive passes diagnostics and proves to be good, then an infection of malware.

One of the reasons I quit using WinXP was because the antivirus software would no longer support it.

I would suspect that any vigorous scanning software looking for an infection will cause the old hard drive to fail, however.  IMHO
