Start with this

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc defragmenter

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD

You can also start this with task manager, file, new task, type sfc /scannow then press enter

Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot
