I have Norton System works and its not that bad at speeding it up, I just use the de-frag thing with it.

But the new microsoft anti spyware beta thing is very good, you can get it from Here

It will remove spyware which will speed up your pc.

Also stopping programs running that you dont need will also help.

In the run dialog, use type in msconfig, if your not a confident windows user or services.msc (i think) if you are, and turn off a few things that you dont use.

Norton is notorious for eating up resources.....

How much RAM do you have?

What speed processor?

I used to run NAV in XP (when I had it..), and then switched to Kaspersky.

I did some back-ground reading (we all got to start somewhere!) on registry tweaking, and tuned XP beyond belief.....
