Inherited PC No discs Win XP

I have "inherited" a computor that has win XP installed.I have no discs for it at all and no way of obtaining the originals,and the PC is slowing down and playing up.I try to access msconfig to take a look and the window closes after about 4-5 seconds.Sometimes it refuses to shut down until I change the restore point....which I dont understand too much as I have only ever used Win 98 until now.

I bought the pc "as is" and use it off line for a small business....I only need some basic office type functions and installed Star Office which is amazingly slow to open and use.

Is there anything I can do to stabilise the OS without the original discs? I have scandisked and defragged....and having only ever used Win 98 find it difficult finding my way around.


Any suggestions?
