Ccleaner and Regseeker tend to work wonders if the fault is not hardware related.

It's our old mate with the 500 floppies, in a spot of bother are we ? Not to worry.
Have you began by clearing all the rubbish out with GANDALFs Ccleaner ? If so try the 'rawprawn' recipe , do a scandisk and defrag , run your anti virus and try a windows update.
