Windows XP Professional starts very slowly then crashes when I try to go to system tools to restore RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows XP Professional starys very slowly (like 10 mins to get to the start page) I'm trying to go to system tools to do a restore point but it does a hard crash before I can get there.
    This is a friends notebook. It is a reconditioned unit and I don't think it had any viris protection. It was working ok a couple of days ago when I downloaded a audio driver for it.

    I think this guy gambles and maybe visits site prone to virises. He never made a boot disk so there is nothing to use to reformat.

    He's going to pay me $60 bucks if I can get it going for him.

    any suggestions?
