Tune-up your Windows XP computer

I believe it has been over 3 years since I last published a Windows tip but the Windows XP 15 Minute Tune-Up is not to be missed by Windows users, so have a look. Many of the tips are those I've done myself for years and simple as they may seem, they really do make a difference in your computer's speed.
