Well I've been experiencing some lagging and slowing down through all my activities on my computer. So I just made a quick search through the forums to see if anyone else has been having the same problem and what they did in their situation. I do not have any virus, spyware or adware problems. I found the directions below and thought they could be useful. Its only part of the directions, but I do believe its the part that slowed down my start up to a sluggish crawl. I didn't use my XP CD while doing the tasks below. Help por favor?

Also, not sure if this is related or not, but my email account doesn't want to connect to the server.

"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 then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.

Windows will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this. This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop."
