    Did you installed some new software lately?
    scan for ad- spyware, check what programs are running on the background,

    advice: upgrade your RAM to 512

    Leave the computer idle for a minute or so before you shut it down (i.e. not downloading/uploading, no programs running). Also, unplug your usb modem if you have one
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think &quot;Ok, this is the limit&quot;.
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    download a program that will re-arrange your boot files. a good one is tune xp.
    just do a torrent searh. or if you want, ill hash it for kl.
