PC acting very strange?

I don't know if there is a simple solution to this or not.Lately my computer seems to have slowed down a hell of a lot.The response times like opening general files seem to take longer than normal.When i open 'my documents' or 'my music' for example,all the icons on my desktop flash a disappear for a few seconds,then return slowly one by one.Also i seem to be losing disk space,i've noticed over 2gb today alone,and cannot account for this.I'm sure this looks like classic virus activity,but all my scans have come up clean.Even closing off normal web pages seems to take longer than it should.The computer just doesn't feel right.I'm using Windows XP,any ideas?Thanks.

Have you done any basic PC housekeeping?

Cleaned out temp files, temp internet files, defragged, run check disk?

You've ticked this as resolved but haven't bothered to tell us what the solution was.

Is your problem solved??
