Re: my computer drive
Better not to just start deleting things if you don't know what you're deleting. It won't make it run faster, and can cause a lot of problems...go to windows update and run a manual update to check and see if they offer to replace some of the drivers you deleted. Depending on what you removed, you could run chkdsk c: /r (link here) or sfcscannow link here and here to repair the xp installation, or you might have to do a repair install of xp.
What you want to do to improve speed are maintenance and performance adjustments. See this article and this article. Stay away from registry cleaners. They won't help. See link here.
Finally, check to see how much ram is installed in your system. xp works best with 1gb of ram or more, depending on what your motherboard will allow. if you're attempting to get by with much less, you'll hit a ceiling when your hard drive starts to fill up that not much else will improve...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
It comes with with a bundle of accessories such as file shredding, temporary file removal, registry error fixing, registry defragmentation, and much much more. The utility is designed to help remove junk from your computer and speed it up. How much your computer speeds up depends on your computer's specifications and how much junk has accumulated. However, I'm pretty certain there will be a marginal increase in performance.
As for your, "drives..." Did you mean, "Drivers?" I doubt your computer had 19 partitions/hard-drives.

Imagine that you have bought a computer that runs adequately fast. However, after a few weeks or couple of months you notice that your computer is not running as fast as it was when you first bought it.
One solution that someone may think is to buy new hardware (new processor, more RAM, bigger hard drive etc)
However before doing that try the following:
First of all go to Start, All Programs, Startup. If this contains items that you do not need you can delete them. These are just shortcuts and not the actual applications. Think if you need these applications to begin everytime you start up your computer. If not then remove them from that menu list.
Second thing you can try is a little bit more advanced:
Go to Start, Run and type msconfig and press enter.
In the dialog that opens go to Startup and see the long list of applications that startup everytime you boot your computer. You should only leave your antivirus program, and entries under the c:\windows\system32
If you are not sure about an entry leave it there or check it over the internet.
Then click on services and click Hide microsoft services. Check again which services should not be enabled and disable them. Use google again if you are not sure about the listed services.
Lastly, right click on MyComputer, select Properties. Go to Advanced tab and under performance click Settings.
Select Adjust for best performance
That's it. You should have a computer/laptop running faster.
There are numerous things to make your old computer run fast again here are a few to do.
1...Disc Cleanup...Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disc Cleanup
2...Defrag the hard drive...Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disc Defragrager
3...Delete any old programs,pictures,files,etc that you do not use anymore.
4...Move all your programs,pictures,files,etc that you want to keep onto a portable hard drive.
6...Add more memory to the computer, add as much as possible your system will allow.
7...Restore your computer back to a time when it was running faster...Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
8...Reload the operating system....Left click on "My Computer", right click on your main hard drive (normally C drive) then click "Format".
This will wipe everything from your computer and when you use the discs that came with your computer or the ones you made you will then insert them into the CD/DVD player and reinstall your operating system and drivers.
This will bring your old computer back to new operating condition.

From what I can tell, an HP 210-1000 is a netbook. It is built for portability and not performance so it is not made to run fast.
If you would like your computer to run faster, you have several options.
The first is to upgrade the parts in your machine. The easiest two things to upgrade with the greatest payoff are the RAM and the hard drive. You can go to your local computer shop and pick these up, but you'll need someone who knows computers to install them for you.
The second is try and optimize your Windows for faster run speeds. This means turning off a lot of the nice visual effects that come with Windows 7/Vista so that your computer doesn't have to work as hard to go fast.
The last is just to get a new computer. If speed is a main concern of yours, then you should look into getting a machine that will be able to run quickly. A netbook or laptop is made for travelling and not for power.
I suggest that you run your computer on safe mode by pressing F8 when booting up and after that defragment your C: drive by going to start menu, choose accessories, choose system tools and choose disk defragment. It will surely run your computer faster that before. Do it on weekly basis to fix some errors in your computer.
Otherwise the only solution is to repair your operating system but it will not delete any of your files. If you want, i can give you a video on how to repair your operating system but you need the operating system installer CD.
There are a couple ways that help quite a bit. The internet is full of hints as well. As a tech Ill tell you the main things that most people miss. First delete all files and uninstall all programs you do not need. Of course you will want to clear all your internet caches and delete the cookies you don't want. When you are all done with the general cleaning run the disk defragmenter. Many people forget to do that and as their hard drives get fuller and fuller files get more and more fragmented. Purchasing a newer much bigger hard drive will make access a little faster especially if it is a faster drive. Purchasing more ram for the machine will likely help if it is marginal. For instance if you got one of those early Vista machines with 500 megs of ram. Bump that up to two gig and you should see a pretty big difference in Vista. If you have a 64 bit machine try bumping it up to 4 gigs. I like it about 4 gigs these days. 4 gigs of ram is standard for all new HP DV7 laptops. Another thing that slows Computers is Anti Virus Programs. Do a search online for speed comparisons of the various antivirus programs. Mcaffee and Nortons are serious system hogs. I mostly use the free version of AVG or the paid version of Kaspersky. But even kaspersky is starting to get bloated. Some people dont like Antivir but I find it works reasonably well and is pretty fast. Of course a virus can really cripple a computer for speed as can spamware.
To make your system run faster there are few things you can try. 1. clean out as much things from starting during system startup. 2. check your user profile, reduce your profile as much as possible. create a folder on the root of the C-drive and move as much stuffs off your desktop and mydocument. 3. Make sure you have enough disk space. 4. you can try to increase the virtural memory a little more. 5. last thing is get more memory.
The things that I would recommend is that you delete as many programs from your computer as possible. Install an antivirus program that is easy on your memory. Scan your system often and thoroughly for virus/adware/malware. Defragment your hard drive. Run a good Registry cleaner.
If you do that, it's the best you can do without upgrading your hardware.
First of all. you can try and delete your cookies.. and then ping your computer..
Go to the start button.. and then go to the run button.. and then when it pops up.. type "cookies" and a screen should pop up and then you highlight all the files that are in there and delete them.. make sure you dont delete the one called "INDEX" Leave that one in there.
But after you deleted the rest of the files, close it.. empty your recycling bin and then go back to start & then run and type "ping" do that like 3 times. your computer should run alot faster.
win xp required more then 256 mb ram mcafee antivirus make system slow, it take more ram so u remove antivirus & also go to run give msconfig then remove start up items. for more information call me +919985064600. avast anti-virus is better it's do not make slower & also norton.
