    So I'm a bit stumped here. I am pretty well advanced with comps - i know alot about the basics of keeping a computer running (got a computer i built in 98 that is still going strong - up 24/7 - built it on a tight budget - upgraded parts SLOWLY - still original motherboard though! - use it as an mp3 server, strangly enough - the power supply on it is still fine - after at least 35,000 of uptime!

    Anyway - My Dell Inspiron 700 Laptop (i know i know - dell - i needed 4 pound range weight and cheap)

    I keep it clean - defrag it several times a year, Run scandisk about twice as often as degrags. And i run avast antivirus with microsoft antispyware.

    It seems as my computer is lagging a little bit more now than before - and worse yet - when i go into standby or hibernate - it randomly decides that instead of taking a minute to get to the login screen - it will take 7 or 8 minutes!

    I have tried to find a pattern (if firefox is open, too many programs). I have gone to processlibrary.com and looked up all running processes to verify no bugs in there.

    And it still happens!

    What is a great stable tweak program that might help clean up the registry on my windows XP Pro OS? Maybe tweak other crap as well.

    Thanks guys!

    i don't think your registry should bother standby or hibernate. I would guess that maybe you don't have the cache set high enough for hibernate (1.5 x System memory), try a reformat maybe? Alot of time, but if it bugs you that much....
