    Check your available resources by right-clicking My Computer; clicking Properties; Click the Performance tab. Resources available are displayed as percent there at top. Check it when you get done running the System Configuration Utility mentioned below.

    Click the Start button; Run; type 'msconfig', without the quoatation marks, in the Run box and click OK; Then click the Startup tab; Uncheck anything you don't need running in the background. For reference on what's not needed running in the background in the System Configuration Utility, view this website first and print out the list:

    http://www2.whidbey.net/djdenham/Running_items.htm

    It's important that you print out the above mentioned list. The site provides a printer friendly link.

    Just as a precaution:

    Update your antivirus, temporarily disable your screen saver (choose None) and scan with your anti-virus set to scan All Files. Update and scan bi-monthly.

    You can scan on-line to double-check your Windows scanner at http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

    *** Mandatory (get a firewall of any brand) - Get free Zone Alarm personal firewall anti-hacker countermeasure from http://www.zonelabs.com. (not the ZA Pro demo) 'Don't let anything out to the Internet you don't know what it is.' Also please see http://www.firewallguide.com/ for more information on why all on-line home computers should be firewall enabled.

    ***

    Get Spybot - Search & Destroy, update, scan and only Fix the pre-selected items, after scan is complete.

    In the System Configuration Utility; Startup tab, just send me the information next to the boxes, not the whole string. You can type those off.

    A quick glance shows one which I would normally avoid and that is webshots - it normally will install newdotnet with it. Have you removed newdotnet?

    As Styxx said, just write down everything that is in the left column, along with which ones are checked.

    From my experience, most people have a bloated startup load, which is the cause of low starting system resources, poor performance, and unexplained freezes and error messages.

    Re-check Scan Registry as well.

    You need the Scanregw tool to back up your registry at startup.

    Yep. Definitely recheck ScanRegistry. That's Windows way of creating a backup copy of the registry each day.
