Windows xp version 2

Sometimes when I click on different programs the hour glass just stays there just seems frozen! I have got loads of stuff on my computer would it be quicker to format my pc than spend loads of time trying to find the problem! I've been running bug software and registry programs I wonder if they have caused the problems.. I can't even use my original windows xp disc now that I have upgraded to version 2 thanks for any advice..
