Hi,
Please give a little more information. What is the slow problem, booting, normal running, downloading from the net, coping or everything?
Have you loaded new software or installed new hardware recently?
How long has it been slow? Did it happen all of a sudden or just slowly get slower? The more information you give the better chance of someone giving you a good answer.

OK, there a thousand + sites out there that will tel you you need to clean your registry, it may have a small effect but there are many things you can do first.
As you would know set deepfreez to boot unfrozen and reboot. Open your "My Computer and right click on your drive (if you have more than one repete these actions on each drive) Click "Properties" In this window click on "Disc Cleanup" and allow it to complete. read the list "Cleanup" wants to delete and if you are happy click "Yes" or "OK" whatever it is. After that is complete, click on "tools" and then "Check now" Put a check mark in the two boxes and click "Start. Your PC will have to be rebooted to check so allow Windows to reboot. Let it finish checking 5 of 5 and it will reboot. Open the same window again and this time click on "Defragment now" select your drive and click 'start" allow Windows to fully finish before you start anything.
Reboot and go "Start" "run" and type "msconfig" without the " ".
Click on the "start up" tab and see what programs are running at boot up. Any programs that run will slow down your boot up time and use memory that could slow your other programs. Any program that you no longer want, delete from "Add and remove programs" in the "control panel" any you do want but do not want running, open the program and change the preferences to not start at boot or windows. While you are in that window, change the 30 (in a box) to 3, that will boot your PC 27 seconds faster.
There are many other minor fixes for making your PC run faster but even a lot of them applied will not make much difference. If you want, search the internet for speed up fixes, but if you are ever going to touch the registry or make major changes, be sure to back up the registry and create a restore point. remember, you have "Deepfreeze" disabled and it will not go back as it was. The next best way to speed up a PC is to do a clean install but that requires you to save all your data, format your hard drive and after reinstalling windows, downloading and installing every SP, hotfix and update since your OS CD was produced. If after all this you still have trouble with your icon, do a SFC. Search the net if you don't know how.

Ok
You say you do know how to boot windows with "Deepfreeze" unfrozen. so first Press your ctrl, alt + F6 type in your password and put a check mark in "Boot unfrozen" and reboot. Go to this site and if you can print the instructions and follow them. will not lose any data from your computer.
