Hi Doreen,
I had a similar problem with my XP machine, and unfortunately, it seemed to
be due to my hard drive failing.
My advice is to take a back up on an external drive or some other device
before you do anything else.
Yours may not be anything to do with the hard drive but it is better to be
safe than sorry.
My XP PC eventually completely gave up the ghost just before Christmas but
fortunately I had purchased a new PC a couple of months earlier so I had
some time to transition to the new Win7 PC before it became a necessity.

Sorry I can't be more helpful.
Kind regards, Ian.

Hi everybody:
Hoping somebody can help me.
Using a desktop computer running Windows XP home, Office 2003 and JAWS 12.
At the present time the computer is running extremely slowly, often freezing
and I keep getting "Not Responding" messages when I try to terminate
programs.  Uninstalling programs is extremely slow and adding programs and
software is also problematic as well.
I have virus scanned, malware bited it, C cleaned it and anti spywared it
but it doesn't seem to make any difference.
Before I take it to a computer person does anyone have any thoughts on what
else I might try please?
With many thanks.
