are there any programmes which makes windows xp go faster that have been tried and tested?

I doubt it...

regular defragmentation of the hard disk, (diskkeeper lite, for example) clearing out junk files (CrapCleaner is good), few background resources click here
(BlackViper has a good guide).

After that plenty of memory (say 512mb minimum) and a decent processor.

What is the spec of your machine?

windows xp intel celeron 256 mb ram 2.70 ghz

Should be ok; do as suggested above and see if there is any difference.

256mb RAM is the bare minimum for XP. Try increasing your RAM to 512mb.
