Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Both Norton and Mcafee are known for slowing pc's down.
Boot your PC as normal, but as its starting keep pressing the F8 key until some options appear on your screen. On of which will be "boot windows in safe mode".
Select that option and a windows shell should open.
Once open got to Start - Control Panel - Add/remove programmes and uninstal both mcafee and norton.
Once complete, reboot and see how you PC runs.
Assuming its working ok now, go back to your control panel - security centre - enable windows firewall.
Go online to "Filehippo.com" and download and istall the free version of AVG (anti virus software) once installed let it scan your system.
Then go back to Filehippo.com, download and install Ccleaner. This has loads of tools, :-
1) Cleaner clears all the tempory internet files of your pc.
2) Startup - you can reduce the number of programes you want th start up when booting.
You don't need any here because you can access all programmes via start but I'd leave AVG and any securtiy related to start and delete the rest. But its probably better to just disable the rest until you're happy with which programmes auto start.
