XP Pro freezing up

Recently my machine has started playing up it sometimes hangs on the start-up screen with the little blue bar that dashes across the screen if I get past this it hangs while loading up the desktop,
Then if I get past this and connect to broadband then start outlook it hangs.
On the odd occasion it works but I would like to sort this out properly. I have run defrag, scandisk, & AV scanned any ideas out there?

Try the sytem file checker

start

run

sfc /scannow

It will need the OS CD.
