If your computer (XP) is running slow, then here are just a few tips to help:-
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.
Add/Remove. Start - control panel - add/remove
Disc cleanup. Start - all programs - accessories - system tools - disk cleanup - tick various boxes - ok - yes
Remove restore points. Start - all programs - accessories - system tools - disk cleanup (runs straight away, wait until finished) - more options - system restore - clean up
Back up (or delete) files to external hard drive etc
Update everything (if not already set to automatic updates)
Run virus programs
Defrag. Start - all programs - accessories - system tools - disk defragmenter - highlight drive - defragment
If all else fails, fit new hard drive
