|Dude, you have 6GB hard drive. What do you think you're going to be able to accomplish? You took a Win98 machine, installed XP on it & now you're complaining about lack of space? And you still have system restore enabled? Why? You can fit an entire backup of your system on a single DVD or thumbdrive. Unless you've changed the default setting, system restore is using 12% of the hard drive space. If you think you're going to need it, you should at least limit the amount of space it uses.|
The bottomline is your system isn't well suited for XP. The CPU is weak, you don't have enough RAM & the hard drive is too small. Stop asking how to make it better. It needs to be upgraded or better yet, replaced altogether. You can get a better system at Goodwill for about $20 or if you have a "Freecycle" group in your area, you should be able to get a better system for free.
SystemSuite? I sure as hell hope you didn't pay for it. There are plenty of progarms that work just as well, if not better plus they're free & have a smaller footprint. CCleaner-Slim & Glary Utilities-Slim are 2 of them. Dare I ask which anti-virus you use? Please don't say Norton or Mcafee!
