Why is my computer slow after reinstalling XP?

I just reinstalled Windows XP and the computer is still running very slow. I have Pentium 4 processor 2.4ghz and 736mb RAM. Its service pack 3. It runs slow with or without the internet. Could the hard drive be bad?

    Was is slow before you re-installed XP? If so then download ccleaner and run it often along with a good anti-virus. I also suggest putting another 2GB of RAM in there, only costing £20 and your computer will be quicker than when you first bought.

    If the install was a clean install, did you install all the hardware drivers?

    So defrag your hard drive, better yet, install an automatic defrag like Diskeeper, you can download free trialware at
