OP posted this almost 6 mos ago and it was probably to link spam on his post. I doubt we hear back from him.

You can delete cookies from the control panel.And do not keep large files on the desktop.Save it in the drives.If then also your system doesnt speed up then go for formattin...

Ccleaner does all that with out having to open a million windows.

The best way to speed up is to add some additional RAM. You will find a massive change in the speed.

Lots of good advice in these posts! You got good stuff.

I swear by a utility program (easy to get) called CCleaner (see pirform.com) which cleans all those nasty files very fast. It also fixes Registry errors (common problem with slow computers). My computer guy got it for me and I am extremely happy with it.
