Click on Start | Run, type prefetch then press enter, in the edit menu, click select all, right click any file then click delete, and confirm the delete.

Click Start | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools to run Disc Cleanup, then from System Tools, run Disk Defragmenter.

Click on Start | Run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you will need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar. When this finished, reboot.

Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial.

Click on Clean up & Repair. Run TuneUp DiskCleaner. Delete all junk files. Afterwords, return to the Main Screen.

Click on Clean up & Repair. Run TuneUp RegistryCleaner. Fix all errors. Afterwords, return to the Main Screen.

Click on Optimize & Improve. Run TuneUp RegistryDefrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot.

After the reboot, start Tune Up again. Click on Optimize & Improve then click on TuneUp System Optimizer. Now click on Accelerate downloads and Internet surfing to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, start Tune Up again. Click on Optimize & Improve then click on TuneUp System Optimizer. In the menu to the left called "Wizards", choose System Advisor. Note some of the advice it tells you.

Let me know if that helps any.
