Slow Computer, Windows 2000

Using Windows 2000 Professional SP4. 2 weeks ago opening websites became very slow. Little blue line on lower left of screen on taskbar (sorry, name unknown to me) cn take 5 minutes to get to end.

Machine has no virus, malware, etc. It's been 'defraggled'. I use CCleaner daily. I think computer has 19GB of something. I only use around 25% of storage; put most of personal stuff on USB Flashies.

Learned how to check what's running. 30 items are running. Really don't understand ANY of the names in the list.

NOTE: Though I don't consider myself computer savvy, am familiar with Registry. Nothing seemed askew in it when I looked. (Please don't reprimand me for looking!) Have not downloaded anything new recently except Avast virus cleaner. I do NOT visit 'strange' websites.

Tried hard to figure out WHY it's become so terribly slow, to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.

How old is the hardware? Is the computer making odd noises? Maybe the RAM is dying? Perhaps you need to scan your computer with a more powerful scanner such as MalwareBytes?

There are alot of possbilities here.
