Sluggish XP...

For some time now, XP has been sluggish. When I right click the mouse, sometimes it takes around 3-4 seconds for the menu to show.

Sometimes clicking through folders has a delay of around 3-4 seconds and pressing delete on a file takes around 3-4 seconds for the delete dialog to appear.

What could be causing this?

I have already defragged my drives.

Could be any number of things. Background apps a registry full of junk are the first two that come to my mind. You can spend a lot of time trying to figure it out. Might just want to try a fresh install

list em and do try and reduce hit on memory...

3-4 seconds for your system is NOT good... :)

also run antivirus...

I did a full virus system scan with NSW 2003 and I have no viruses on my system.

I have no idea what could be causing this.

I have 320MB of RAM left too.
