After a storm related power outage, xp on my desktop,is taking 30 minutes to fully load. once loaded, mouse does not function. Can use keyboard in limited capacity to bring up start menu and other apps, including system restore, but can not procede to restore. Have cleaned pcu out. Restarted several times.Even screen saver is extremely slow.
Even the laptop I am using now is slow and upon using task manager, task manager...running comes up over 15 times, when olny using control alt delete once,.as does desktop.
I am a layman so simple instructions please.
