Doesn't really make a difference whether new or used your machines. What matters is the preventive measures as well as the regular maintenance required to keep it running at top condition.

There are several methods of maintaining an efficient PC meaning to keep it running as fast as it originally was when you got them. Before I can make any suggestion, please add some more information by replying to the queries below:
1. What is the Operating System of the computers?
2. Are the machines tied to a local networking?
3. Do you have access to Internet and in what manner are you connected?
4. Do you have any anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-malware running?
5. Do you have a user account other than the Administrator for each PC?
6. For what purpose are the PCs used (gaming, office application, internet surfing)?
7. What other devices are attached (brand/model/capacity of video card, CD drives, bluetooth, infrared, webcam etc) to the machines?
8. Are you using some sort of a Cafe Manager program?
9. Do you have a dedicated server other than the 17 units?
10. What software utilities are you using (Norton, System Mechanic, TweakUI, Registry Cleaner)?
11. What other programs are running constantly (Chika, Yahoo Messenger, ICQ, etc)?

Soon and upon receipt of your reply, we can start figuring out corrective measures and other actions your onsite technician can perform to prevent future slowdown and maintain efficiency.

Good luck and kind regards.

Compaq Evo.Running very slow last 4 days,what can i do from home

One of the first (and easiest things) you can do is download Malware Bytes to do a scan and clean of your system. This will also allow us to rule out malicious software being the cause of your slow down.

Trying to wipe the hard disk of an old Compaq Evo

You message cut out. It's very difficult if not impossible to wipe a hard drive when you're using that hard drive. You need to get a program like Gparted or Disk Manager. The first is free and can be downloaded.

Computer slows up

Sounds like something is slowly using up all the memory on the PC. I would use the Task Manager to see what program is doing this. To start the Task Manager, go to Start -> Run and type: taskmgr The Task Manager window will then open. Click on the Processes tab. This will list all the programs and how much memory they are utilizing. Click on the Mem Usage column, and this will sort all the programs by memory useage. If you find one using an unusually large amount of memory, select it and press the End Process button. You will then be asked to confirm you want to stop it. Hit Yes. With this process stopped, see if system performance improves. You can also click on the Performance tab and see what the computer's resource utilization is, such as CPU and Memory utilization.
