my children have 2 older XP machines.  one had some good family photos and was in worse shape.  the reports above are for the other machine.  one of your colleagues was very kind getting the really bad machine going again, but ultimately decided to wipe those clean and do a linux install. grabbing last few photos off them.  all they do is surf, email and some simple office stuff.  will do an open office from libre i think on those 2 XP machines. took the recommendations above on the better machine and it seems to be okay, but time to dump XP i think.
