on the Microsoft website there is an option to have word or your programs to be assigned to specific computers, most accounts allow only 2. because your hardrive is new it is recognizing it as a new install, so select your old computer and reassign your new one.
I have kept my 2009 MacBook running faster than when I got it by upgrading the internals of the machine. I maxed out my RAM and installed a new SSD hard drive which are known for their speed, but are expensive. You likely also have a gigabytes of junk that built up in the computer, like grunge in the corners of something that hasn't been cleaned for some time. That what it needs, is a clean. Try this, CCleaner downloadable for Mac on CNET. Click what says secure download next to the left of the ratings.
Upgrading the RAM and maybe Hard Drive are the biggest opportunities to speed up your Mac. It can only go as fast as it's built to, and as time goes on machines aren't always strong enough for the newer and more memory and processor consuming programs and OS.
Slow computer If you have a virus program installed, it is most likely is running a scan on your hard disk. It can slow down your computer especially if you have a large hard drive. After scanning is completed then the computer will be faster. To make your computer (hard disk) lean and mean, uninstall any programs you do not use. Also you need to maintain your hard disk by running Disk Cleanup this will remove old temp files and old compressed files etc. This will reduce the number of files the virus scanner has to scan. Plus running Defrag. this makes your files contiguous so the system can access files off the hard drive quicker because it does not work as hard.. Disk Cleanup and Defrag should be carried out at least once a month. If you have 512Mb of RAM installed then installing more RAM will speed up your computer. After installing your graphics card, you may need to disable the built-in graphics card in the BIOS for the new graphics card to work properly.
The software you are running may not be compatable with leopard. Some programs that are older will only recognise the OSX10 Tiger operating system. I would uninstall the program and find a similar one that is compatable with Leopard.
