Computer initial performance

Specs: Windows XP, 1GB
HI all... it has been a while not posting here,
but was getting much help from all your
replies. This time, I have a few questions, I
hope you can answer them.

1) Where should I look on my lap, the root
cause of initial LOW performance, everything
runs very slow only at the start, let's say.. at
noon, performance looks ok to me again.

This could be related to the initial programs
loading?

2)How can I clean out my registry for broken
app installs and tools not being used
anymore?

3) (and last question), does defrag really helps
to read/write better on hdd and pump up
performance?

Thanks for any kind of help.

Don´t freak out until you know the facts...Relax...!

First, run Disk Cleanup found in the System Tools folder of the Accessories folder. For your registry question, download CCleaner at www.ccleaner.com . It's also a good internet browser cleaner and cleans all your temp files, cookies, history, etc.

If Disk Cleanup doesn't help, put in your Windows XP CD and press R for Recovery Console and enter this as a command: chkdsk /p /r
