Hi gerald.janda...

There are a lot of ways to tweak the speed so we'll just let everybody chime in on this one. Here's my contribution:

First, run Disk Cleanup and then Disk Defragmenter from System Tools (Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools)

You could also add another stick of RAM (another 512MB would give you a noticable difference...if your system will support it)

Can you tell me what Tweaks you did? You might have done them wrong.

is there a way that i can download like an accelerator to my computer??? is there a software for that???

there is software for that, but I would not use it. It would just do some of the things listed in Easy Xp Tweaks, and if something goes wrong you don't know what it was, so you can't fix it. Are you sure you don't have malware? it could be causing all sorts of problems.

You could download TweakXP. A program that helps you make your machine faster.

Also a trial version of Tune-Up utilities. Also a great program for optimizing, tuning and customizing your windows machine to your needs.

Gerald I had a look around and I see that you are having more than one problem in the XP forum but have not posted a HiJack This log could you please Read This and then post in the Malware Forum, not here. Once they say you are clean come back here and I will help you with what you need.
