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.
Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen 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.
Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete, then reboot
When it gets to the desktop, the system files and the hard drive will be as they should and you can check for any improvement
This section is optional
Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial
Run Tune Up Disc Clean Up
Run Tune Up Registry Clean Up
Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this and check it is running after the reboot
After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot
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
If no change, the next thing to do would be a repair install, this will leave data and settings intact
If you are unable to run XP Repair
Alternate XP Repair
Use the last one, Windows Installation CD to repair the current installation, which uses a slightly different method
After running the repair it will be necessary to install all Windows Updates
