Disable Performance Counters
Windows has several tools to track the performance of your system and display the results in graph form. If you don’t use this information, disabling the services can help to speed up your system. The easiest way to do this is by downloading Microsoft’s Extensible Performance Counters List and using it to disable the performance counters.

Disable Unnecessary Ports
There is a good chance that you have a few ports that you won’t be using anytime soon. In most cases, you can safely disable these without causing any troubles. As always, be extremely careful when you go around playing with your BIOS.

Empty Your Prefetch Folder. Windows uses the Prefetch folder to store data that it uses often. Unfortunately, over time this folder will become filled with programs and data that you no longer use. Emptying your Pre-Fetch folder every few months will save you a few cycles as Windows won’t be loading data that it no longer actively uses. You can find your prefetch at:

/windows/prefetch

If ur xp slows then u may apply the above….. For 2008 there is other way !
