Have you installed all windows Updates especially SP2? Have you checked
for Malware? If not, use all of these free
sites. Do this first before installing SP2.

Remove any disks from your CD or DVD drives. Does it still take a long time?

accidently deleted something I dont know what, But when I click My Computer
It searches with the flashlight a long time then finnaly loads the drives and
my documents
