Memory & hard drive space are 2 completely different things. 2GB memory should be fine for XP. I'm guessing your hard drive is running low on space. The 1st thing you should do is install CCleaner-Slim, run 'Analyze' & see how much it will free up:

I use this on every comp I work on.

Wise Disk Cleaner ( Run the 1st three tabs, left to right. I use default settings, leave boxes that are unchecked, unchecked ) Reboot when finished.

3.Can I delete Service Pack 2 if I have 3 ?

No. Most of SP2 was overwritten by SP3. What you can delete is the backup and installation files for SP2

"Do I want to keep Modzilla if I'm use google Chrome and not Internet Explore?"

If you mean Mozilla Firefox then it is an alternative browser (like IE and Chrome), so whether you keep it or not is at your discretion. It won't do any harm if it stays but it does take up space. If you want to remove it go to "Control Panel > Add-Remove Programs", find it on the list and uninstall it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
