Might want to check the ram. That will always make a PC run slow, but if you have a sufficient amount of ram I would say a gig for running xp. Then re-formatting and re-installing the OS will make the computer faster. Also some PC have a built in recovery partition.

Maybe a virus

is it the internet that runs slow or everything? either way, go to the following site:

click on the link that says "Scan Now. Its Free!" it will do an online virus scan of your computer, and this should get rid of any viruses you have. You may have to install Java for it to work. If so, it should provide a link to install it. If it doesnt, google "java software" and download the software. it may also be a RAM problem (not enough computer memory) but thats probably not as likely if your computer is new. Also, you can go the task manager and delete all of the processes that you think arent needed (such as itunes, etc. make sure that your user name is under the user name column for each one you are deleting, and DO NOT delete the "explorer" process or any system processes). And this may speed up your computer as well.

Problem in scanned images uploading

If you have 50 units of computer working the same time such as uploading big files, the problem for the rest among your 7 computers that work fast is between the hub connectors on the network system. You can check this connectors by replacing those slow ones to that faster computers.
Then if your faster computers slow down and the replaced connectors from slow working bacomes fast then the problem is in your hub distribution connectors.
If you had trace to that problem, then replace the whole unit of hub connectors.
