WIN XP Acting Up

Has anybody noticed their XP doing strange things in the last week. Unfortunately I have had to leave XP in the parts bin (and on a spare hard disk) and now have Windows 7 Home Premium as my Operating System of choice. Have a favorite quick-fix tool to share? LINUX here I come.

The older Windows versions (I tested Win 95, Win 98, Win 2000, Win ME, and even the unreleased Windows Neptune) had no problems. I uninstalled the Windows updates and that made no difference.
