Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

Windows operates very slowly

Even thought I ran Disc Cleanup and then Defrag, the system operates better but still very slowly. For instance, when I launch IE, it takes a minute or so to let me see the browser. What to do?

Remove ask toolbar

Hi James,
I assume you've tried to uninstall the tool bar by going to your Control Panel>Programs and Features.
If you already tried using that method and still can't remove it, you can try the
It replaces the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility and works better in most cases of removing all instances of the software you're trying to remove.
Thanks, and hope this helps.

Hello there,

Initially, you can do a disk cleanup and disk defragmentation. Go click on Windows Start >> All Programs >> Accessories then System Tools. Disk cleanup will delete all uneccessary files in your computer. Disk defragmenter rearranges files stored on the computer making it load easily.

You can also do a free scan by clicking on the link below.

Just defragmented my computer and Norton System Doctor says it is seriously fragmented. What's up? Norton Speed Disk can't seem to help either.


Even if you ran the defrag program you may still not get a full defrag because your disk space it to low.

To get a go defrag you have to have 15% or more free space to get a good defrag of your hard drive.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

My computer can't defrag, it just runs for hours on end.

I haven't used the default defrag prog in windows for a long time but it was always known to take forever if regular defrags had not been performed.

This will be the case for any defrag prog. however there are faster ones out there. Try the following free one and defrag weekly.
