Although XP is several years old, it’s still one of the most popular and well-used operating systems in the World. Not only do many people use it each day, but 1,000’s of businesses still rely on the system to run. This is great, but the big problem for many people is that XP is prone to running slowly, and in order to fix it, you need to be able to cure all the damaged parts that it might have.
The reason why XP runs slow is actually nothing to do with viruses or hardware issues (that are often blamed for it running slow). In fact, XP runs slow for a very simple reason – it’s prone to collecting a lot of junk & corrupt files. Because XP is such an old system, it’s got a lot of loopholes which causes it to save many important files in the wrong way, causing them to become “junk” and useless. This is a problem which affects all XP machines and can make your PC run as slow as a slug.
Every time you use XP, it needs to read 100’s of files to help it run. All these files tell it information such as which desktop wallpaper you have and which username you use, etc. However, because your computer is using so many of these files each time you use it, it’s constantly getting confused and saving many of them in the wrong way. This causes the sysetm to run slower and slower as it has to take longer to process the files it needs. And as more & more files become damaged, your PC’s speed just gets worse and worse.
This problem affects all XP machines and the only reliable way to fix it is to use a software program known as a ‘registry cleaner’ to go through your PC and remove any of the junk files and fix any of the damaged files that it has. These tools work to scan through your system and then fix any damaged files that they identify. You can use these tools on any Windows PC and we’ve found that they are extremely effective for use on XP.
