I've tried disabling most of the startup programs, disk cleanup, disk defragmenter, scan disk, registry mechanic, virus/spyware scanning, and uninstalling unnessessary files. Yet, programs are continuing to startup/run very slow. Which leads to freezing and crashing, forcing me to push the power button to turn the computer off. Sometimes the computer starts up but the screen remains black and I have to press the power botton again to turn it off, which I know is really unhealthy. Later on whenever I start the computer, a word pops up about a failed hard drive and asks me to press F10 to boot or go to computer set up.
I am using crappy ol Windows Me.
