Yep lets run a disc check whilst we are waiting

Step One: Open "My Computer", RIGHT click on the C drive icon, choose "Properties".

Step Two: When that loads, click on the "Tools" tab, then click on the "Check Now" button in the "Error Checking" section.

Step Three: When that little window loads, place a CHECK in BOTH boxes, then click on "Start Now".

Step Four: A message will pop up saying that Error Checking will run after you restart the computer, so......Restart the computer.

Error Checking will run automatically after the restart and it locks you out from doing anything until it's finished. It takes a little time to perform the task but after it's finished, it will restart into Windows automatically.

I don't know what happened, but after I finished the process my computer runs very slow..

I can't even move my mouse properly, my computer works like I am in the middle of 3D rendering something..

I ll try to restart again, and for the xp sp 3 my friend still searching the CD (I can't push him so I ll just wait)
