Slow computer

Since re-installing XP my computer has become chronically slow, BUT not every programme! IE, Word, Excel, Control Panel can take several minutes to appear (if at all), but other programmes including Outlook Express are immediate. Booting up is also very slow and the drawer on my CD writer only works on some days. I have plenty of memory and disc space and no conflicts are shown in Hardware Manager.
