Re: speed up my computer
Slow...might be a very relative word
did you try checking for any malware,viruses etc. on your computer
those are the basic cause of making a system slow
you could check what are programs are starting at start up and wheter the are actually usefull or not
i would suggest you try
AVAST 8 and carry out a boot time scan .
this will get the viruses before they are executed a very good feature.
perform a disk clean up
there are many ways.
even if you follow a few of the you would find a good improvement in speed

There's nothing you can do about your internet speed, dial up is dial up and is known to be slow. If you want fast internet then you would need broadband.
A memory upgrade would speed up the overall performance of the PC. For example: the computer may take 5 minutes to fully boot up and programs taking time to launch. This would not fully resolve but help it to be more responsive.
A memory upgrade is always recommended by me. I expect that your computer can be probably maxed out to 2GB of memory.
Computers slow down, even after a short time, there is a little guide that will help to speed up, and keep it safe and secure http://www.fixya.com/support/r5272277-secure_clean_computers
I would also advise a little more memory, but i have ran a few pc's with 256mb ram and they where still usable.
Try ebay for older types of memory
it it is xp the follow the following steps When you start to shut down Windows XP, it has to quit, or "kill,"
any live applications or processes that are currently running. So close all
applications first. However, some applications and processes are always
running in the background. You can reduce the amount of time that Windows XP
waits for those applications and processes to close before Windows XP kills
them. 1. Open registry editor 2. Navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control
Panel\Desktop. Set the WaitToKillAppTimeout and set the value to 1000. Select
the HungAppTimeout \newline value and set it to 1000 as well. 3. Navigate
to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control. Select the
WaitToKillServiceTimeout value and set it to 10000. 4. Close the Registry
Memory Tweak 1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) and
locate the following key in the
registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\ MemoryManagement\PrefetchParameters 2.On
the EnablePrefetcher value, change the setting from 3 to 5 (decimal). 3.
Close the registry editor and restart your computer
You might not have enough RAM, (Random Access Memory) RAM is memory that the computer temporarily stores for future commands, and I know Vista takes about 1-2 GB of RAM to run, if it can't handle it, I'd suggest using windows XP.
