windows xp running slow

  jbigmoff 09:04 12 Nov 2004

When I click my computor or windows explorer or control panel it takes 3minutes to come up. This is also case with internet(broadband) but office opens immediately. Ran virus scan, PC clear of virus. Also ran XP service pack 2. No difference.Any suggestions

or spyware?

Also how much RAM (Memory) is in your computer?

Have run ad-aware plus spy sweeper.When I run spy sweeper,it asked me to delete files which have been recently updated in windows.I deleted them.Can't remember whether I have 64mb or 128mb ram.I am not using my home pc at present.

XP requires at least 256mb to run efficiently. May be worth buying some extra memory if you've got 128mb and if you've only got 64mb I'm not surprised it's running slowly!
