My Windows XP SP2 PC has 4999 BagMRU Folders in the Registry file. Can these be deleted? Would these cause PC to process painfully slow? Takes Internet up to 13 secs to browser. Once at browser, 5 sec delay to perform any tasks. This is using IE6.
Would upgrading to SP3 correct any problems with performance?
PC has 3 Gb RAM, Pentium 4, with 2.8 Ghz, AMD.

This is a fairly common problem in Windows XP, especially with SP2. The most common method that fixes it is to delete some registry keys.
Click on Start-Run, type regedit (without the quotes) Navigate to this registry path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
--> Software --> Microsoft --> Windows --> Current Version
--> Explorer --> User Shell Folders Clear the key: Recent (right mouse click on the key/folder, choose Delete) Close the Registry Editor and restart the computer.
Windows XP, by default, shows the thumbnails view of certain folders, whether you want it to or not it may still revert back to the clumsy Thumbnails view.<br /><br />It does this for any folder in which it finds the THUMBS.DB file if like me you don't like to have this hidden little file.<br /><br />To stop this being created for all folders use this registry tweak<br /><br /><a href="http://cid-b9ec6690da6fa3eb.office.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/TWEAKS/Disable.Thumbnails.reg">http://cid-b9ec6690da6fa3eb.office.live.com/self.aspx/.Public/TWEAKS/Disable.Thumbnails.reg</a><br /><br />Then do a full file search and delete all the THUMBS.DB files as this will only stop new ones being created. OK<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
This issue occurs because the Wups2.dll file that is included in the latest version of Windows Update is not installed correctly.
For scenario 1, the registry entries that correspond to the Wups2.dll file are missing after the repair install of Windows XP. The release version of Windows XP does not contain the Windows Update software.
For scenario 2, the registry entries that correspond to Windows Update are changed back to the Windows XP SP2 version if you did not restart the computer before you install Windows XP SP3. The registry entries for the Wups2.dll file are changed to pointing to the Wups.dll file that is included in the release version of Windows XP SP2.
Method 1: Download and install the Windows Update Agent
Method 2: Register the Wups2.dll file
