    Get these programs:

    CCleaner v.2.33.1184:

    AVG Free Antivirus:

    Spybot Search and Destroy v1.6.2:

    Install those programs and follow these directions:

    1.) Install CCleaner and clean the system.

    2.) Use CCleaner to fix your registry.

    3.) Stick with the AVG basic protection for free, it's what I use and it's all you need.

    4.) Install SpyBot, enabling the active protection (TeaTimer) and run an update immediately. It will require you to restart SpyBot. After restarting it, run the immunization which will take some time but it's worth it. Run a scan and get rid of the spyware if AVG missed anything. Remember to manually update SpyBot once a week.

    All these programs are completely free and will fix your problem. I've used XP for the better part of a decade and I still love it. These programs keep even my single-core laptop running well and I'm sure you'll be more than happy with it. Another thing you can do is open your control panel, select Java, select settings and delete the temporary files. You'll notice an immediate increase in speed. CCleaner, AVG and Spybot will keep the popups away.
