Windows XP SP3 Or Malware?

Since I intalled Windows XP SP3, this machine has gotten progressively slower.

Avast! alerted me the other day to a trojan horse that apparently was timed to wake up lurking in a — what I thought was a legitimate and free! — DVD ripping program I’d downloaded but never used months ago. Avast! claimed it grabbed the sucker and moved it into its isolation chest, but I’m beginning to wonder.

Scouring this machine for malware is at least a full day of work. I have to run several programs because there still isn’t — and probably never will be — just one that can find everything
