Converting to NTFS

I have been restoring and rebuilding a computer over the last few months.
I have upgraded many parts and tweaked many things, but it still lags quite a bit.
I am thinking that this is because I am on the FAT32 file system (Am I correct? Is there any other reason for this?)
Is there anyway I can convert to NTFS and quickly restore my programs and files- or will I have to start from stratch?

I am on a Dell 8100 with Windows XP.

Hi SunnydaleSpike!

Yes there is a way to convert from FAT32 to NTFS, but it is risky so backup everything you need saved before trying just in case it doesn't work. To convert to NTFS, please check out this link.
