If your computer (XP) is running slow, then here are just a few tips to help:-

 

 

 

1)  Check Disk  
My Computer - highlight 'C' drive - right click - properties - tools - error checking - check now – tick:- ' Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors'- start (runs through four phases)
When finished tick 'Automatically fix file system errors' - start - says you cannot run this - system needs to restart.

 

 

 

2)  Add/Remove
Start - control panel - add/remove

 

 

 

3)  Disc cleanup
Start - all programs - accessories - system tools - disk cleanup - tick various boxes - ok - yes

 

 

 

4)  Remove restore points
Start - all programs - accessories - system tools - disk cleanup (runs straight away, wait until finished) - more options - system restore - clean up

 

 

 

5)  Back up (or delete) files to external hard drive etc

 

 

 

6)  Update everything (if not already set to automatic updates)

 

 

 

7)  Run virus programs

 

 

 

8)  Defrag
Start - all programs - accessories - system tools - disk defragmenter - highlight drive - defragment

 

 

 

9)  If all else fails, fit new hard drive
