Scan with antivirus. Scan with anti-spyware click here (recommend Ewido). Do a disk check (start menu/run, type `chkdsk`).

If you have more than one Partition, turn Restore of on all Patitions exept C:\ with the operating system on, Set C:\ to 7% of drive

No only to XP Restore.

Have to removed as manny programs as you can from MSCONFIG?

i dont bother with restor points. its the one good thing that mite have been good in xp but like most of M$ good ideas they dont work. iv have removed all unnesisay progs from msconfig.

Looked at that but still no difference with some of the changes i have made dew to the list. Also its taking ages now sometimes to view the cntent of a usb hd. It pops up with the content for a sec and then disapeared and goes into overdrive to view it sumtime taking up to a min to show it again! And now also similer things are happening when opening small programs up like paint. Any ideas. If not il just reinsall windoz again.
