I'm running Windows XP Home, and I was having a problem with my computer going really slow, and I couldn't do more than two or three things at once. I decided, "Maybe if I do a destructive hard drive wipe, and set it back to COMPLETELY original, it'll go a little faster after having tons of junk cleaned out of it." So that's exactly what I did. Destructive system restore. Well, after it was done, I got back on the computer, only to find that it was just as bad, if not totally worse than it was before. Now, if I dare to run more than one thing at a time, my virtual memory drops instantly, and I'll freeze as bad as the ice age. /: Any ideas on what I can do ? (:

Well...you could start by providing...system manufacturer and model...amount of RAM installed...size of system partition and amount of free space currently on system partition :thumbsup:.

Are all critical updates for XP installed?

Have you run a diagnostic check of your hard drive?
