XP hangs on Welcome+video plays 'bitty'?

Hi, please can i have a bit of advice?
My friend told me today that quite often his computer hangs on the welcome screen and he has to restart it. The other problem is when he plays youtube clips it tends to almost play them in slow motion....then it catches up with itself, also when his daughter uses a program where she has to draw a line on the screen it 'drags' somewhat?
Sorry for this vague description but id really like to help him.
Thank you in advance.
