I re-read the slow comp troubleshooting checklist for Windows 2000 (I have done all of these steps of removing files and malware etc... to my own comp). I am helping a friend remove some her files because comp is toooooo slow upon start up.

When I did all of these steps on my comp it also removed some of my programs that I wanted to keep such as: CD and DVD burner and some others. Luckily I had the cd's that came with my comp.

My friend doesn't have her cd's so is there a way to select files that you don't want to be removed? (In easy terms so that even I can understand)? lol
