    Go to and install either the free version 1.44 of StarDownloader, or the paid-for (optimised for XP and a few bells and whistles) newer version.
    Either way, it'll function with all OS'es, it's ad-free and spyware free and the most recommended downloader.

    As to your slow(?) disk, do a chkdsk /f and then a defrag. Empty Trash Bin.
    Delete all files and directories from: C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Temp
    Repeat this for ALL [usernames].
    Delete all files and directories from: C:\WINDOWS\Temp (except files dated from TODAY).
