I cleaned my hard drive and installed Windows XP Service Pack 2, I formatted to NTFS and now my computer is extremely slow. Is there anything I can do to speed it up?

Have you ran any anti-spyware programs?

If not I would recomemend downloading, installing, updateing and running a full scan of the following: Spybot Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware, and Microsoft Anti-Spyware. Each of these can be found in signature.

Good Luck
Hope this helps.

It's a good idea to defrag before and after installing SP2. I worked on one yesterday that was quite slow, but after defragging, installing SP2, and then defragging again, it was quite a bit faster.

If your computer is slower now than it was before you installed SP 2 or if you are experiencing any other anomalies adversely affecting your computer's operation as a result of the installation of SP 2 or any other Microsoft Critical Security Update please see below:
