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
You can also run these
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.
Back up any data you need in case the drive goes on you, and depending on the age and amount of use the drive has had, replacing it is probably a good move if it continues to show errors so soon after running check disc
