This would take a recovery operation similar to what they do to recover info off a damaged hard disk, would take time and money. Best to go to the website again if it's still up , giving you access

Speed Up Windows XP in 5 Steps


Most of the times we observe that our system seems to gradually slow down. Here below i am listing five basic and easy steps
that can help you speed up your Windows XP computer.

1. Clear the Prefetch Folder :The Prefetch Folder contains files that keep getting stored on your computer whenever you launch any program or application. Deleting these files clears up space on your system that might have caused the slow down. Here is how you need to go about it.
Click Start..click Run..type Prefetch and click ok. The prefetch folder will open up. Press Ctrl and A together. This highlights the entire contents of the folder. Press the Delete key on the keyboard and confirm the deletion. Once done close the prefetch folder window. Now right click on the recycle bin icon on the desktop and right click and select empty recycle
bin and then confirm the deletion.

2. Disable Startup Items: Certain programs get initiated in the background as soon as your system starts causing the system to slow down. These programs are actually not required on startup but because they get initiated it affects the system performance. Here below i am listing the steps to take care of this issue. Please note this step is very effective and
enhances your system startup speed significantly.
Click Start...click Run...type msconfig and click Ok.
The System Configuration utility window will open.
Click on the Startup tab on the top right. Click on the disable all button. Once done, in the list above, you will see many options with checkboxes. Please check any option that indicates your antivirus program software and internet service provider.
Click Apply and Ok. Please restart the system once.Once the system reboots you will get a message coming up saying "You have used the system configuration utility...." Please check the option below that says" Do not show this message again" and click OK.

3.Clear the Temporary Files Folder: Certain temporary files get created as a cache of our activity on the system. Clearing these files from time to time also improves the system speed. Below are the steps for the same.
Click Start..Click Run...Type %temp% and click Ok.The temporary files folder opens.Press Ctrl and A together. This highlights the entire contents of the folder. Press the Delete key on the keyboard and confirm the deletion. Once done close the folder window. Now right click on the recycle bin icon on the desktop and right click and select empty recycle bin
and then confirm the deletion.

4.Clear Cookies and Temp Internet Files: As you browse the internet the images of the pages you view get saved on the system occupying space on the system. Clearing these files increases your system performance while on the internet.
Open Internet Explorer. Click on the Tools menu on top right. Click Internet Options. Click on delete button to delete cookies, files and browsing history. Click Apply and Click Ok.

5.Scan our system for infection: Your system might run slow in case its infected with virus, spyware, malware, adware, trojans etc. Here below i am listing a tool that you can download and run on the system Its free of cost and is very effective. It scans your system and cleans up any infection. Click on the below link to download the tool. The link that opens up also has a tutorial on running the tool in case you face any difficulty.
Download Combofix Tool


With the above 5 steps, your system speed should surely get enhanced.

To correct this issue, follow the methods that are described in this section in the order in which they are presented until the issue is resolved.

These methods are designed for beginning to intermediate computer users. After each method, refresh Internet Explorer to check whether the problem is resolved. If the problem is not resolved, try the next method. Method 1: See whether pictures are available on another Web site loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); Sometimes the link to a picture on a Web site is broken, and that is why a picture is not being displayed. Visit another Web site to determine whether pictures are being displayed correctly on it. If they are being displayed correctly, then there is nothing wrong with Internet Explorer. Instead, the Web site that you are visiting might be broken.

If you can view pictures on another Web site, you are finished. If you do not see any pictures or if you cannot determine whether the Web site that you are visiting is broken, try clearing your temporary Internet files by using method 2.

Note If you use Internet Explorer 8, try Compatibility View. To do this, start Internet Explorer 8, click Compatibility View Settings on the Tools menu, and then add the Web site that you want to view by using Compatibility View. Method 2: Clear temporary Internet files loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); Clearing your temporary Internet files creates more space on your hard disk. If your hard disk is close to being full, this could affect your ability to view pictures on a Web site.

To clear temporary Internet files, follow these steps:

Internet Explorer 8
  1. Start Internet Explorer 8.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. On the General tab, click Delete under Browsing History.
  4. In the Delete Browsing History dialog box, click to clear all of the check boxes except for the Temporary Internet Files check box, and then click Delete.
  5. Click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.
Internet Explorer 7
  1. Start Internet Explorer 7.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Delete Browsing History.
  3. In the Delete Browsing History dialog box, click Delete Files.
  4. Click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.
Internet Explorer 6 and earlier versions
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. On the General tab, click Delete Files under Temporary Internet files.
  3. Click to select the Delete all offline content check box, and then click OK.
  4. Click OK to close the Internet Options dialog box.
Check whether you can now see pictures. If you still cannot see pictures, try method 3. Method 3: Verify that the Show Pictures option has not been turned off loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); If the Show Pictures option in Internet Explorer is turned off, you cannot see pictures. To determine whether the Show Pictures option is turned off, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  2. Click the Advanced tab, and then verify that the Show Pictures check box is selected under Multimedia.
  3. Click OK.
Determine whether you can now see pictures

  1. On the Windows taskbar, click Start > Programs > Accessories > Windows Explorer.
  2. Delete the program installation folders for all Symantec program that were installed.

Desktop HP Pavilion XL753 Very slow performace- including when im not even online. How can i fix it?


A couple of things that might help come to mind.
First, you may just have a lot of crud that has collected over time. Go to your control panel and select "Internet Options" Under the temporary files, click on the "Delete Cookies" and "Delete Files" buttons. When you click on the delete files, you are given an option to check a box to delete all offline content. Make sure to click on that. Below those options there is a "Delete History button and you should click on that. This is some basic house cleaning routine that you should do a couple of times a month if you are online a lot.
Next, you might want to go online and download a copy of AVG and a copy of Ad-Aware. These are a couple of real good anti virus programs that are free and will dig out problems that many of the paid for programs (Like Norton and McAfee) won't find.
Hope these tips help solve your problems.

Have a good day!
