boot into safe mode (F8 key)
uninstall any unwanted programs
start windows explorer, click tools, folder options, view,
tick show hidden files and folders, sometimes you may need to Untick
hide protected operating system files as well click yes then OK
back to windows explorer click
Documents and settings
There you will see a list of users including some windows makes on install of OS
Click on the user you use then look for
Cookies folder and delete all file and folders in there
Click on the cross next to local settings, in there is a temp folder and a temp internet folder you can delete all files and folders in there. As you are in safe mode any folders need by some programs will be recreated when you start in normal mode.
Delete any files/folders in C:\temp if you have one and C:\windows\temp
Some say to delete files in C:\windows\prefetch, they will be recreated when needed but you might have something in there that’s not needed anymore.
Lastly I use a free reg cleaner from
install and run the reg cleaner, when finished click on the select all text at the bottom of the program, click select all green items, move the mouse onto any selected item right click and choose delete, at the bottom right is a counter just have a look at the number before you hit delete than again after.
Run the usual in safe mode virus/adaware/spyware etc
Lastly do a defrag
see how we go from there
