My wifes XP laptop with all her business and client files etc has been slow ever since she began using Windows 2007. Getting into the internet can take as long as 5 minutes and opening a file, as long as 1 minute. Today, I followed the following advice
"Download and run Autoruns from here http://www.atribune.org/index.php
Delete anything that says "File Not Found" then download and run TFC from here; http://www.geekstogo...ds&showfile=187 if your computer does not reboot automatically after running TFC do it manually, this will basically tidy up your HDD.
When the computer rebooted, the normal sounds and colored desktop items appeared and then the entire screen faded into grey and all within about 5 seconds. The laptop is running but I can't see a thing. I turned it off and tried again and the same scenario ensued. Any suggestions before she arrives back from work?
