You could also try keeping the startup list very trim. Besides that download security updates on time (automate it). Defragging will definitely help. In fact defragment regularly. (You can automate this task also by using a program that can be set to run in the background). If you google, you can check out various free trial options.
My computer is running really slow. I removed a few programs and documents today that I never use. Would defragging it help? I also ran clean up. What else can I do?

Ray, I do recall you were having health worries, and I'm glad to hear you've made some progress. I think BC is one of the most friendly tech forums and we try hard to give people the best help we can.

Then the general principles are the same, defrag is useful but it's just one aspect of having a system run well. The XP defragmenter is adequate for most people, it's a limited feature version of Diskeeper. XP does benefit from having adequate RAM fitted to the system - 512MB is a workable amount (less cramps things) but it can take full advantage of up to 3GB and usually part of the extra available with 4GB.
I have Windows XP Professional
