when is the last time you did a "defrag"

Also you can have a look at blackviper.com

they "advise" what you need at start up or not.

xp has an unfortunate habit of loading loads of progs at startup which are not needed. Go to start run and type msconfig you get a lot of tabs go to the right hand end startup and look at the list. Every one with a tick in the box is loaded at startup. I take the tick out of them all except my virus checker and firewall. You then have to restart. Once started a box opens put a tick in the left hand box and ok it. Things should have speeded up quite a bit.
