Yeah, I suffer from it too. The wife does not want me to touch the lappie anymore - "your AV and similar programs are slowing it down, my friend said". Now this is probably true, so how do I get into her good graces again - I've checked the lappie and ran the various WinXP cleanout programs, without much luck. And I can only speculate on speed - got no idea whether anything is actually speeding up - usually just ask the wife (and cower behind a rock for fear of enormous amounts of bloodletting). Any suggestions?

LOL

give spybot,adaware and your anti virus scanner a go, that should speed a fair bit up. do you have enough ram to run xp? how much free space you do have left? what is under run -> msconfig -> start up tab?
