If you’re like me, you get frustrated on a daily basis with your XP box. I hate to see people slow themselves down with spyware, adware, and virus’ so I have decided to share my secrets to speeding up your Windows XP Computer!
- Boot into Windows XP
- Hit F8 every 2 seconds until you’re given the option to boot into ‘Safe Mode with Networking’
- Now your computer should be blazing because none of that nasty spyware is running.
Now that you are able to finally operate your computer, let’s speed it up even more.
- Download This File (note: it may take quite some time based on your connection speed)
- Once the download is finished, get This Program, and install it.
- Using the program you installed from #2, burn the file downloaded from #1 to CD.
- After burning is finished, put the disc back in your CD tray and reboot the computer
Now you’re halfway done! Soon your Windows XP computer will be operating very fast with zero virus’ and absolutely NO spyware!
