Help !!!

I am running XP pro on my laptop (evo n1015v), nearly every time i start up, I have problems.

Programs freeze up, start menu won't start, internet settings not functioning etc etc.

Laptop seems to run very slow at times, with hard disk activity light on for up to 2 mins after start up.

I am loathed to re load XP, and lose all the saved programs. I have tried restore function, but it won't restore to past dates.

I have tried using usb port hubs, but no matter what the problem persists.

Help & ideas please

Thanks

try running disk clean up and then disk defragmenter.

Start - Accessories - System tools - Disk cleanup
