Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
1. Start the Windows "Task Manager" (use CTRL-ALT-DELETE to launch it). Compare the amount of virtual memory being used with the amount of physical memory (RAM) that is available.
Not enough RAM is like piling dirty-dishes in the sink;
sooner or later, you need to remove some of the dishes,
in order to make room to wash the rest of the dishes.
Moving those dishes in/out of the sink takes time.
Trying to use much more "virtual" memory than "real" memory also takes time.
2. Disconnect the Ethernet cable from the computer, and disable any built-in wireless adapter. Does the computer start to run faster, when it cannot communicate with the Internet?
3. Virus-scan it.
4. It's possible that the disk-drive has some "bad' spots -- Windows tries & tries & tries to write to that bad spot, which, of course, slows everything down.
5. Close unnecessary programs (WinAmp, BearShare, BitTorrent).
