Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file, click delete, confirm, reboot

When you uninstall software their entries in prefetch can remain, so Windows looks for the programmes as it loads, you can look for the individual entries in prefetch but that can take a while so deleting the contents of the folder will be easier, although the next few boots will not show any improvement as Windows restores the prefetch entries for the programmes which are still on the PC

Run this and note the number of errors and size reduction with reg defrag

Get the trial of Tune Up 2006 here

Tune Up 2006 Trial

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete.

Run Tune Up disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection (without an internet connection if applicable) from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

(Skip this if you do not connect to the internet with this PC) After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

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.

Click start then run, type
sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and get an onscreen blue progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot.

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, click more options then clean up restore points, click confirm, click OK. Then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

I suggested those because you had 432 errors, and although you have fixed those, we need to deal with the cause (hopefully once) and not the effect, repeatedly.

chkdsk /f /r (with the spaces) will check there are no reasons why the drive won't accept and retain data

sfc /scannow (with the space) will check the system files are correct

While the above will take a couple of hours, if you run through the Tune Up steps afterwards, you will have a PC which does not have a drive error, system file error or software error

If it still runs slowly, you can move on to look at the installed hardware for errors and or device conflicts
