Dell mini forced shut down, now runs slowly

\015 Dell Mini 10 running Windows XP. I put a flash drive into the USB and my computer froze so I forced it off. Since then, it takes upwards of 15 minutes to start up and opening folders takes around 10 minutes. I'm trying to back up my data (very slowly) in case I need to reformat the hard drive, but do I have any other options? I only ask because I am out of the country for two more months so will be unable to access my external hard drive until then.\015\012\015\012Also, my wireless is no longer showing up and the Control Panel screen freezes. That is more of a secondary problem, just the cherry on top of this wonderful problem.\015
