Answers :

Here's what I suggest. Install and use One antivirus, and use a Registry Cleaner. The more antivirus programs you install, the slower your PC will become.\015\012\015\012I suggest Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. \015\012One, because it's better than Windows Defender, Microsoft Live One Care, Norton, McAfee, Spybot Search & Destroy, Avast, AVG, and a whole list I could type here.\015\012Two, because there is a free version, and I don't advertise anything that costs.\015\012Three, because it actually works. I am stating first hand knowledge.\015\012\015\012Info about Malwarebytes on Wikipedia.org,\015\012http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malwarebytes\015\012Download page for free version of Malwarebytes,\015\012http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10896905.html\015\012\015\012Now, slow speed huh? If you can, add more ram memory. Now about the registry cleaner.\015\012Everytime you go to a website you pick up cookies. You also pick up other 'tidbits' of useless stuff that just slows your computer down. A Registry Cleaner will remove this useless data, and speed your computer up.\015\012I use CCleaner,\015\012http://www.ccleaner.com/ (Again, free software)\015\012\015\012Also, the more programs and applications you have on your harddrive, (In your computer), the slower your computer will be. Go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs, and see if there is any that you can live without. LEAVE the Windows programs alone!\015\012\015\012Lastly, I suggest you defrag your harddrive. Start>Control Panel>Performance and Maintenance>Rearrange Items On Your Hard Disk to Make Programs Run Faster.
The GX 270 is an older model now; there are likely quite a few things that are slowing it down.

CRUFT: Easiest way to remove cruft is to use CCLeaner from piriform. It's free! When installing, be sure to unclick the yahoo toolbar install option. It is fairly straightforward to use and will clear out a lot of gunk.

Next culprit is spyware/ malware. Best tools I've found are spybot search and destroy by Safer Netowrking and Malwarebytes Anti-malware. Install, update, and run both. If you cannot get to their home pages, or they will not run - you're infected and will likely need expert help to clear the infection.

Next best thing to do is ensure service pack 3 is installed (for XP only).

Defraggler (made by the same people who make ccleaner) is a good, simple hard drive defragger. Download it. Install it. Run it. Do it overnight, it will take some time.

The single biggest speed booster is a RAM increase. If you have less than 1024Mb, upgrade. It isn't expensive and it isn't difficult. From memory that unit needs DDR memory, but it is a good idea to check.
