Personally I would wipe the drive and install Ubuntu or Mint. How much RAM does the computer have and what CPU?
Or do 1-8 and see how the computer runs. As you know XP is no longer supported with security updates. I would not do any banking or internet purchases on the XP computer. There are know security holes that have not been patched by Microsoft.

Right click My Computer and select Properties. It will be under the General Tab.

You need at least 1GB or RAM in order for Ubuntu to run reasonably well.

It has been unused for weeks, ever since our dog, ate the keybord and mouse.
So heres my plan:
1. Make USB of CCleaner Portable
2. Get some sort of quick portable anti-virus put it on USB.
3. Wait for CCleaner to open, then scan and clean.
4. After, use the USB Anti-Virus and run scan
5. After both of those things hopefully it has speed up?
6. Run Windows Disk Cleanup
7. Run Windows Drive Defragment
8. Uninstall unneeded junk.
9. Use Windows Update
PLEASE HELP ME! IS THIS A GOOD PLAN? Please give me some advice and some of the above.
OR could i somehow get rid of l XP, and install Ubuntu or etc?
I dont know about the RAM or CPU.
I think im just gonna wipe it for Ubuntu.
