Click apply, reboot then when it gets to the desktop click do not run the configuration utility when windows starts
From start up you can remove the ticks for most things, leave the firewall and anti virus enabled, along with any antispyware programmes
You can still run programmes you remove the ticks for, though they may take a bit longer to start because they did not load at start up

i did what u said step by step. in msconfig startup tab, there was a tic for aol which i unticked and there wasnt any entry for googletalk. so i restarted and i got back to windows and chose not to run utility each time like u said. i first opended my task manager and they were gone. so i tried AIM again and when i went to sign on, it stpopped responding and is now again stuck in task manager as running and wont end. also i tried to login into my googletalk and that wouldnt connect and i closed it and that is also still shown as running in my task manager. were back to step one dude,lol. im lookin at my task manager now and it shows aim.exe using 18.656k mem and googletalk.exe is using 7,260k mem. BUT my CPU usage is at normal level of 0% to 5%
The application tab only shows the Firefox pages i have open as of now. this is now weirding me out.

This is a list of steps you can run through
Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.
Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, all the files in the folder will now be highlighted, right click any file, click delete, a box will appear asking if you want to delete all the files, confirm the delete then reboot
Open the CD ROM Drive used to install Windows, insert the XP CD but leave the drawer open. Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter and close the CD ROM Drive drawer. You will get a blue progress bar, after the bar goes, reboot. This will check for and replace missing or corrupt system files.
You can check for an improvement after running sfc /scannow then after each step until you have run through them all, if necessary
Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.
This will take an hour, it will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this.
When it gets to the desktop, the system files and the hard drive will be as they should
If no change
Please go here to repair your operating system
If you are unable to run Repair XP
Alternate XP Repair Guide
Use the last one - Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation, which uses a slightly different method
Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system
After running the repair it will be necessary to install all Windows Updates
This bit is optional
