Default Boring i know,but can any one help?

My computer has over the past few months run alot slower, the main thing is when browsing pages (internet or in windows) they stutter when scrolling down. Ive tried using various spyware but no luck, is it something to do with my hardware?

I have

Windows Xp Professional
AMD Athlon Processor
256 RAM
Hercules 3D Prophet 4000XT TV Out

Would this have anything to do with my computer running slowly? do you think i should upgrade the RAM or the 995MHz

Any help really appreciated

It may have to be one of those overnight jobs on the larger know, run defrag, go to bed, hope it's done by morning.
