There are alot of things you can do to speed up XP. The best solution for you to do is to backup all the data and reformat and reinstall windows. This will clear off all the junk and get you started on a clean slate. Windows never runs better then when it is first installed. Short term solutions are, defragmenting the hard drive. Killing processes that are not needed.
Hope that helps,
Lee

My laptops slow need to make it better


Hello

Installing windows xp, will only slow down your computer, as windows xp use much more resources than 98.

Also, we are not allowed to provide customers with piracy links.

Daughter bought computer hates it cause it is slow loading up


Check if there are a bunch of virus and spyware blockers running. The ones that run all the time HOG the resources. Also a bunch of those programs that continually look for updates. You have enough memory and likely the machine is fast enough. Websites pile on a bunch of toolbars... all the crud just slows things down.

Hello there: really just looking for some solid advise this hp52w w has the original xp operating system in it with sp2 installed works ok but it gets so slow on the starting windows screen it takes...


Hello Mike, Hi, may I suggest you try first to defrag your hard drive, Im sure when you power on your PC, the hard disk led keeps on blinking, your hard drive may have developed bad tracks and sectors, this slow moving process tends to go forever.

Defragmenting and checkdisk can find faults and bad sectors and tracks that slows down the performance of your PC.

Reformatting should be done if your defragmentation procedure fails to speed up your PC.

Try to run an antivirus program, which may help speed up your PC by detecting viruses, that tends to load forever, or slow down the booting process.

RAM


download and install: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

this will allow you to delete the things that startup in the task bar. Windows will load faster, and you can open just the programs you want. This will not delete the program just remove them from automaticly starting up. RAM always helps. 1GB is the standard for XP to run very smoothly 2GB is the best
