    Run an updated virus scan.
    Or Scan for Viruses online:
    http://security.symantec.com/ssc/home.asp?j=1&langid=ie&venid=sym&plfid=23&pkj=IRLFIZTYMWPAZTJWUFJ
    Run Disk Cleanup checking all boxes except "Compress old files"
    Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Clean-up
    Run Defrag.
    Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/Disk Defragmenter
    If you have file sharing software such as Kazaa, disable it.
    Check this link:

    Run Ad-Aware (free version) or Spybot to check for spyware:

    Or
    http://spybot.eon.net.au/ (Update if you already have it)

    This may apply if you recently installed Windows XP Service Pack 1:
