    It seems the file was too big. Can I delete anything from it?

    You can post 200kb as a zip file.
    Save it as a text file and zip it.

    I had a quick look but it will take hours.
    You STILL have uniblue registry booster and drive cleaner - PLEASE uninstall them, If you will not accept my advice there is no point in continuing.
    Do not be offended by that.
    I have only recently joined here.
    Have a look if you wish to at some of my posts on Tech Support Guy and GeekstoGo.

    A quick look tells me that
    Drive E


    Item Value
    Letter E
    Drive Type Fixed Drive
    Percent Used 96%
    Used Space 74.3GB
    Free Space 2.43GB
    Total Space 76.7GB
    Volume Name Spel
    File System NTFS
    Volume Serial Number 5491-760D
    Sectors Per Cluster 8
    Bytes Per Sector 512
    Free Clusters 637777
    Total Clusters 20104174

    If this is a working drive accessed when the system is running, rather than just a backup etc there is INSUFFICIENT free space for the drive to do anything efficiently. TEN (10%) per cent is the usually accepted minimum. Some experts recommend 15 to 20%. Obviously it varies with the original capacity but what you have is NOT enough.

    Drive C


    Item Value
    Letter C
    Drive Type Fixed Drive

    Used Space 68.9GB

    You are right on the limit of free space.

    Unless I am mistaken, which I do not think I am, you have the wrong driver for your graphics card.
    You are running 32 bit XP and here is the link to the site. I do not know if it will stay on the page but simply check on Desktop graphics, HD4000 series, xp 32 bit and you should be here. I cannot find your driver listed for that specification, although I have found it offered on some other sites.

    I uninstalled both programs, perhaps after running the Audit program.

    As for drive E, I barely use it. I only have some old games installed on it, but those I play work perfectly fine.

    And no, that is the driver I have installed. I think. Well, I can't do anything at the moment, and not this week (I move between two homes every monday).

    Anyway, I'm thinking about getting Windows 7 64 bit, in order to get all the performance possible from my 6 GBs of RAM. When I do that, I'll install it on the larger 260 GB drive, use the two 80 GB drives for backup and documents, and install programs on the huge TB drive.

    IN that case I will consider the matter closed.
    Do not forget to run the Windows7 compatability test first, available free on the Microsoft site.

    Next time you ask for help, try just saying thank you a couple of times.
    This site provides help free and an expression of appreciation goes a long way.

    I did say thank you in my first reply, turnet out it was just stuck in a mod check.

    And I do appreciate your help a lot, I didn't even think people knew anyting about these kinds of problems.

    Again, thanks!

    OK no problem.
    Pleased you sorted it.
    I still think you have the wrong driver for the graphics
    This is from your audit log and the one on the site link I sent you is NOT this

    Also having looked at most of your log
    You appear to have PC Tools and Kapersky anti-virus.
    You also have PC Tools Internet Firewall and Windows (but Windows is disabled) on this log, never run two anti-viirus or two firewalls together.

    Additionally and you would benefit in the performance generally, your services need altering by way of automatic, manual and disabled mode.

    If you are interested I can send you a link to research each service.
    For instance you have remote desktop running. Unless you use Remote Desktop Help it is pointless.

    I advise you run this, you have many unnecessary startup items. The program is perfectly safe.
    It is from one of the most respected malware scans in the country (UK) and elswhere and this is just one of their other utiltiies.

    Kaspersky should be uninstalled. Strange. Anyway, it's not activated.

    Wait...what? I have only used remote desktop once, and that was probably over a year ago!

    And yes, I would like those links, thank you.
