Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition for PC
Go to My Computer, either through the Start Menu or by a desktop shortcut. Right click your C: Drive (or any other drive you don't want indexing), then choose Properties. This opens a new window. Under the General Tab, you'll find a checked option that says, "Allow Indexing Service to index this disk for faster searching." Uncheck that box.
Indexing doesn't use up enough resources to bog down a system, though. It will cause your HDD to constantly be working anytime the computer is on, but it's using very little of your available memory or CPU power. I would open msconfig from the Start >> Run Menu. Click Services, then the box that says Hide All Microsoft Services. You don't want to disable any of those. Go through the list and disable anything you don't want running, then do the same on the Start Up tab. Microsoft Services will still be hidden. This will cause things you don't always need running (like msn messenger, for example) to not automatically start when Windows starts. They are still 100% usable. Note that my experience with msn messenger is that it will automatically reconfigure itself to start on start-up anytime you run it.
Another handy option is to download a program called Ccleaner. Install it, then run it to clean out both Application Data and Registry. Be sure to save all back-ups when prompted. Restoring them is simple if necessary. Following running Ccleaner, download and install MalwareBytes AntiMalware. Run a scan then use Control Panel >> Add or Remove Programs to uninstall it when you're done, it's not an effective active scanner.
Hope all this helps. How much RAM are you using?
