Placou, I can also see that you have turned on your Indexing Service on Windows XP. Are you sure you really want to use this feature, if you normally do not spend a great deal of time searching for your files or for strings of texts within these files? If you don't search very often, I guess it's not a good idea to devote your system services for speeding up a service that you really do not want. Because by disabling the indexing service you'll save a great deal of processor resources and RAM on Windows XP. But if it doesn't bother you, feel free to keep the service. You may choose to disable the service, only in case you find your computer is slower and procesor usage is erratic at times, and you don't search very often.

Here's a tutorial of the symtoms and how to turn off Indexing Service from Microsoft.:
Windows XP may run slowly and you may see multiple symptoms in Windows Task Manager
