1st off - do a restore on the computer to bring it back to factory settings. This will clean it up and speed it up as well. 2nd you need more ram . Ram is very cheap and Vista needs lots of ram to run.
Thishis should solve your problem. Total cost to you is about $50.00

Speed Up Windows XP in 5 Steps

Most of the times we observe that our system seems to gradually slow down. Here below i am listing five basic and easy steps
that can help you speed up your Windows XP computer.

1. Clear the Prefetch Folder :The Prefetch Folder contains files that keep getting stored on your computer whenever you launch any program or application. Deleting these files clears up space on your system that might have caused the slow down. Here is how you need to go about it.
Click Run..type Prefetch and click ok. The prefetch folder will open up. Press Ctrl and A together. This highlights the entire contents of the folder. Press the Delete key on the keyboard and confirm the deletion. Once done close the prefetch folder window. Now right click on the recycle bin icon on the desktop and right click and select empty recycle
bin and then confirm the deletion.

2. Disable Startup Items: Certain programs get initiated in the background as soon as your system starts causing the system to slow down. These programs are actually not required on startup but because they get initiated it affects the system performance. Here below i am listing the steps to take care of this issue. Please note this step is very effective and
enhances your system startup speed significantly.
Click Run...type msconfig and click Ok.
The System Configuration utility window will open.
Click on the Startup tab on the top right. Click on the disable all button. Once done, in the list above, you will see many options with checkboxes. Please check any option that indicates your antivirus program software and internet service provider.
Click Apply and Ok. Please restart the system once.Once the system reboots you will get a message coming up saying "You have used the system configuration utility...." Please check the option below that says" Do not show this message again" and click OK.

3.Clear the Temporary Files Folder: Certain temporary files get created as a cache of our activity on the system. Clearing these files from time to time also improves the system speed. Below are the steps for the same.
Click Start..Click Run...Type %temp% and click Ok.The temporary files folder opens.Press Ctrl and A together. This highlights the entire contents of the folder. Press the Delete key on the keyboard and confirm the deletion. Once done close the folder window. Now right click on the recycle bin icon on the desktop and right click and select empty recycle bin
and then confirm the deletion.

4.Clear Cookies and Temp Internet Files: As you browse the internet the images of the pages you view get saved on the system occupying space on the system. Clearing these files increases your system performance while on the internet.
Open Internet Explorer. Click on the Tools menu on top right. Click Internet Options. Click on delete button to delete cookies, files and browsing history. Click Apply and Click Ok.

5.Scan our system for infection: Your system might run slow in case its infected with virus, spyware, malware, adware, trojans etc. Here below i am listing a tool that you can download and run on the system Its free of cost and is very effective. It scans your system and cleans up any infection. Click on the below link to download the tool. The link that opens up also has a tutorial on running the tool in case you face any difficulty.
Download Combofix Tool

With the above 5 steps, your system speed should surely get enhanced.

It is taking 15 to 20 minutes just to pull up internet explorer, computer is very slow. I have deleted a lot of unused files and ran a Norton 360 scan and it is still very slow. The Model is ELI300G

Start in safe mode with networking (hit F8 repeatedly after the boot splash screen), Open Internet Explorer, go to and run their free virus scan.

Home page is slow to come up, and computer is slow when changing programs.

There are lots of things you can do to help your computer to run faster. 1. Use the tools in Internet explorer to clear out your temporary internet files. 2. Use Disk Cleanup in system tools to clear old files. 3. Go to control panel, add/remove programs and uninstall any programs you no longer use or want. 4. Download a free registry scanner and run it regularly. 5. Run the Disk Defragmenter in system tools from time to time. 6.(For advanced users) Use the msconfig program to remove unwanted startup programs. I hope that these things help you.

My computor is taking a long time to get onto web site

Hi there,

Usually this occurs due to various reasons. I would suggest a few steps to troubleshoot the issue.

Open the web browser you're using to browse the pages. Check for the tool bars that may be installed.These toolbars gets installed automatically while downloading any applications or files in the Computer. If any toolbars are installed please uninstall them. These toolbars can slow down connecting to the internet.

In order to uninstall these toolbar, perform the below steps:

1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs.
2. Under Change or Remove Programs, check the presence of the name of the toolbar in the list of installed programs.
3. Please uninstall the program from the list and check if this resolves the issue.
After performing the above, I would recommend you to restart the Computer once before you access the internet.

I would also suggest that you try deleting cookies, history files and temporary internet files.Please view the below article to view the steps:

I would also suggest that you disable the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6). Please refer the below article to view the steps:

Also try using different web browsers like Firefox, Safari, Opera etc., and check if the issue still persists.

I would also suggest that you boot the Computer into Safe mode with Networking option. Please refer the below article to view the steps to start the Computer in "Safe mode with Networking" option.

Please check if the browser is still taking a lot of time to open a web page. If the web page open normally, then I guess it is required to upgrade RAM of the Computer.

Please check whether the issue started after installing any application. If yes, try uninstalling the application and check if this resolves the issue.

If the web page opens slowly, then I suggest that you reinstall the Operating System.

Pc really slow to resond pages from internet time out suposed lots of faults to fix supposed faults on regetry.

tep 2 Here are two tricks I want to share with you before we get into the tools.

The first one is Add/Remove Programs. I also included this feature in the Step above. You reach this feature by go to: Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs. If your problems occurred right after you installed a new program, find that software you recently installed and click on it. A button should appear on the right-hand side which says either Remove or Change/Remove. Click it. Follow the prompts in order to uninstall the program.

The second trick I want to tell you about is Removing Temporary Internet Files.
Open Internet Explorermag-glass_10x10.gif and find Tools. Click Internet Options. Under the General Tab and the heading of Browsing History, click Delete. A new box will pop up, click Delete All. Check "Also delete..." box and click OK.
To do the same in Mozilla Firefox, open Firefox and choose Tools. Click Clear Private Data. Put a check in all of the checkboxes and click Clear Private Data Now.
What this does is remove temporary files that your computer automatically saves when you browse the internet. It's designed to make browsing faster by storing already viewed data for use later when the same information is accessed again. The problem is that it is a hotspot for viruses and infected files. Also, there may be a lot of these files depending on your settings and if you have ever done this process before. Cleaning out this folder will make our future virus scans quicker and save us a lot of time.
Step 3 Now it is on to the tools. I have mentioned the "free" aspect a few times in this guide and it holds true. However, the next program is not free to everyone, but it's important enough for me to include.
Also, I introduced you to Safemode in a paragraph above. After installing and updating but before running scans with the programs below, start your computer in Safemode and then runs the scans. This will allow the programs to remove threats that it may have problems removing otherwise in normal mode.

Mozilla Firefox
If you have never heard of Firefox, you are missing out. Think of it as how Internet Explorer should work. It does all of the same things but better. It will open quicker and keep your computer more secure. Download, install, and say goodbye to Internet Explorer.
