XP is running dangerously slow. Even when I type right now, it's freezing and acting up. I don't think it's spywares or viruses since I've scanned and their both clean. Do you have a clue how to get it working at a normal speed again? Thanks in advance.

Also when I boot up I always have to go to 'Last Good Configuration' to get it working. If I don't it comes up a blue screen and restarts straight away - I think it has a messege with something to do with a video card. Not sure though.

First, try this: How To Disable Automatic Restarts When Windows Crashes - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/74644/how-to-disable-automatic-restarts-when-windows-crashes/

Then, write down any error message that appears and post it here.

Okay, I got that sorted now with the messege, no more blue screen but my computer is still running horribly slow.
