My Sony VAIO is getting slower and slower

  1. Hi all,

    My SONY VAIO VGN-TX3XP has been my business PC for a while.
    Recently, I got it back into business, but I noticed that it is extremely slow.

    I do not care of the data already there (have been moved to other PCs) but I really need to have this one working in a proper way. Well at least not have the IE open after 4-5 minutes after pressing the IE icon.

    Is there a way to figure out what slows it down, as well as fix what ever can be fixed?

    Thank you in advance,
    DIONYSIS

    Yes I'm starting to think these are not a great comp at all!, I brought a brand new sony vaio laptop which is top end of the market. and it also take 2-3mins for explorer to start, the operating system takes atleast 3-5mins before you can do anything, other than that it just frozen. No viruses, running windows 8. but I have an old pent 4 , 2.8 dual processor running xp that flogs the arse off it.
    I found this on another site to see if there is any conflicts with explorer.
    run cmd and type sfc /scannow
    and let it run.
    cheers
