    Thanks Sudo. Your link works OK for me, so I'll have to look round for others. I have only noticed the problem with ZDNet so far, so maybe it is just their site that is the problem.

    You could try SharpKeys as an alternative. I haven't used it for many changes, but it has always delivered what I wanted, and it is extremely simple to use.

    Check the services on startup

    Caroline,

    Slow boot is often partly due to the number of services which are started at boot. Some of them don't need to be running at all, and simply slow the netbook down. Your best bet is to go...

    XP's system file checker

    It is unlikely that sfc /scannow will help, unless Caroline has a copy of the original installation program or its I386 folder. The I386 needs to be specific for the OS loaded, and to be available...

    I don't have any add-ons (i.e. extensions) installed, nor any widgets, so the answer is somewhere (else) under the bonnet! Advanced search works OK, as I originally said, so firing up IE8 for the...
