I really need to follow these steps, because I don't know what's the problem with my Windows Xp, but it works slowly and I almost can't do anything on it! Maybe I'll ask specialized help from a friend who works at IT consultancy Toronto... he will help me for sure, because he knows so many things regarding computers.
