I tried to find simillar problems by other members, but couldn't make out much.
As many other i too encounter lately quite slow sys performance:
- Sys boot takes longer
- Programs take longer to load & start, although within the pgms it works ok.
- Poor video (webcam) and audio
- Sometimes the sys hangs (but this is an older recurring problem), although now it seems to happen less... (?)
It seems that the sys is somehow "choked". I kepp looking at the Task Manager but can't make out much.
All this started when i had a removable HD which started to "tick", thus i assumed it's going to crash.
So i copied it to D:\, which is a split disk of C:\, removed it and changed all references to its folders and files.
Both C: and D: have plenty of free space for paging (gigas).
Inevitable, some may still linger somewhere in the system, but if so, i can't find them. Anyway, i don't get any warning or error on this.
I thought about Registry cleaning, but friends told me it's quite risky...
I looked into PCStats and got lost with all them services.
My system is a XP Pro home system, with SP2 using several local users.
Any assistance will be welcomed.

Thank you very much.
