Speed Up Windows XP in 5 Steps


Most of the times we observe that our system seems to gradually slow down. Here below i am listing five basic and easy steps
that can help you speed up your Windows XP computer.

1. Clear the Prefetch Folder :The Prefetch Folder contains files that keep getting stored on your computer whenever you launch any program or application. Deleting these files clears up space on your system that might have caused the slow down. Here is how you need to go about it.
Click Start..click Run..type Prefetch and click ok. The prefetch folder will open up. Press Ctrl and A together. This highlights the entire contents of the folder. Press the Delete key on the keyboard and confirm the deletion. Once done close the prefetch folder window. Now right click on the recycle bin icon on the desktop and right click and select empty recycle
bin and then confirm the deletion.

2. Disable Startup Items: Certain programs get initiated in the background as soon as your system starts causing the system to slow down. These programs are actually not required on startup but because they get initiated it affects the system performance. Here below i am listing the steps to take care of this issue. Please note this step is very effective and
enhances your system startup speed significantly.
Click Start...click Run...type msconfig and click Ok.
The System Configuration utility window will open.
Click on the Startup tab on the top right. Click on the disable all button. Once done, in the list above, you will see many options with checkboxes. Please check any option that indicates your antivirus program software and internet service provider.
Click Apply and Ok. Please restart the system once.Once the system reboots you will get a message coming up saying "You have used the system configuration utility...." Please check the option below that says" Do not show this message again" and click OK.

3.Clear the Temporary Files Folder: Certain temporary files get created as a cache of our activity on the system. Clearing these files from time to time also improves the system speed. Below are the steps for the same.
Click Start..Click Run...Type %temp% and click Ok.The temporary files folder opens.Press Ctrl and A together. This highlights the entire contents of the folder. Press the Delete key on the keyboard and confirm the deletion. Once done close the folder window. Now right click on the recycle bin icon on the desktop and right click and select empty recycle bin
and then confirm the deletion.

4.Clear Cookies and Temp Internet Files: As you browse the internet the images of the pages you view get saved on the system occupying space on the system. Clearing these files increases your system performance while on the internet.
Open Internet Explorer. Click on the Tools menu on top right. Click Internet Options. Click on delete button to delete cookies, files and browsing history. Click Apply and Click Ok.

5.Scan our system for infection: Your system might run slow in case its infected with virus, spyware, malware, adware, trojans etc. Here below i am listing a tool that you can download and run on the system Its free of cost and is very effective. It scans your system and cleans up any infection. Click on the below link to download the tool. The link that opens up also has a tutorial on running the tool in case you face any difficulty.
Download Combofix Tool


With the above 5 steps, your system speed should surely get enhanced.

All the Best!!!

My system was so slow.I did all the clean ups bought good registry cleaner still slow. So I tried deleting programs then I followed instructions from pc mag and obviously deleted too much. Lost internet,...


Did you try defragmentation? If no then do it. You need to defrag your system every 1month atleast and before deleting all your programs did you check your task manager which processes are eating your Ram and making it slow? Check and end those process, Start up programs also slow down your system. Disable some of the start up programs which are not needed while starting up your system. For this open ccleaner and in tools open start up and disable some programs. Advanced SystemCare software and ccleaner are much more enough to take the clutter and tune your system. Hope these tips help you.

Intermittent connectivity and slow movining


Hi. Try to delete all items from the Prefetch and Temp folder located in:

C:/windows/Prefetch and C:/Windows/Temp respectively.

After deleting those files, try reseting your Internet eExplorer by clicking Tools, then Internet Options, Click the Advanced Tab and Press Reset near the bottom of the window.

Than try to check if thee's any improvements on the speed of your connection. Otherwise, you need to upgrade your RAM for more muscles or speed.

Long time to load on every click


theres a few things you can do to make your internet faster. First, you should know what type of internet you have. Dialup is going to be slow regardless. Also what browser are you using? Some would suggest that FireFox is much faster than a program like IE. Either way if your internet was previously faster try clearing your browsers cache. In ie click tools--> internet options -->delete --> delete all. In firefox click tools --> clear private data -->clear private data now. that should speed you up quite a bit.
