Question about Acer Windows Vista TL-562G Notebook
Computer is mind-numbingly slow. has 512 DDR2. Does it need 1 gb for vista?
Yes, Vista is a serious RAM-muncher. It is always good to have more RAM on the system.
However, it could also be due to fragmented files, slow startup can be due to too many files on desktop, virus, etc.
First thing I recommend is to defrag the Hard drive and registry. To defrag, click Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defragmentation.
This may take a while depending upon the size of the HDD.
Next, do a full system scan with your anti-virus software (with latest updates). Or you can try this free online scan tool:
Make sure you do not have too many TSR programs running in the background (TSR=Terminate and stay Resident, like anti-virus, etc. Basically programs that load at boot up and stay in the background, but eat up CPU usage and memory).
Finally, if that does not help, try upgrading the RAM. Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

1gb would be the minimum I would run. 2-4gb would be ideal. Vista is a memory and resource hog. Please, upgrade RAM asap! You will enjoy your computer so much more.
