5Gb of HDD space ids just enough for an Operating System with Internet Applications.
You could run Windows XP smoothly on that capacity.
To keep the temporarily storage and cache as low as possible it's better to let Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox clear the temp. folder & cache once a few days.

Can speed be improved

how much memory is currently in the computer? If less than 2GB, consider adding memory (RAM) to the 2G maximum which will help. Otherwise, you can only clean out unnecessary startup programs, make sure your hard drive is not too full (keep at least 5GB hard drive space frr) and defragment your hard regularly. Also, check for malware and adware - try malwarebytes ( to clean out malware that slows down systems. Use the FREE version.

Pp1020 harddrive

Hi doug160451,
Could you please post the specifications of your laptop, but if your laptop originally came with a 5 Gb Hard Drive then chances are it would be an old laptop and you would do better upgrading to a new laptop than go through the problems associated with upgrading only your hard drive.
