Having problems with your Intel Pentium 4, 2.53 GHz (SL6S2) ?

My Pentium 4 2.53GHz computer is running slow

\015 I have a Pentium 4 2.53 GHz computer with 0.99 GB or RAM. When I bought it in 2002, it ran super fast. Now it is runs very slow. I have defragged the hard drive, cleaned up the temporary files, and have cleaned up the hard drive as much as possible. I am not considering over-clocking it because I do not believe that my cooling system will handle the heat generated.\015\012\015\012It gets so slow that when I send a file to the printer, the computer stops until the printer finishes printing.\015\012\015\012I run iTunes, Outlook 2007, MS apps, and IE browsers. Outlook 2007 slows down my computer so much that I open it to check/send email then close it. It takes 1 minute for MS Excel and MS Word to open when I use them.\015\012\015\012I appreciate your help.\015\012\015\012Thank you,\015\012SuperLuis33\015

\015\012overclocking will kill it off in no time at all, never over-clock, unless your testing a product,
\015\012on SOHO systems, they are not built to over-clock really, over-clocking, it will burn out in a 3rd of the lifecycle.
\015\012there are a few things you could do,instead.
\015\012Backup old data you have on it to an external Hdd, then remove the copy's off the Pc,
\015\012use less Applications at once.if not using, close it
\015\012Checkout software like Rambooster,
\015\012Add bigger Hdd, Add more RAM.
\015\012Increase the size of the page file.
\015\012In advanced system performance, adjust for better performance,
\015\012type MSCONFIG in the run box, in the startup tab, un-tick unwanted/needed items
\015\012(( must know what your un-ticking )) or possible DISASTERS.
\015\012Defrag twice on the trot,
\015\012get rid of anything un-used, go to your programmes, un-install old "un-used" programmes,
\015\012( Don't delete everything in sight )
\015\012be very specific, but check all over the system,
\015\012delete duplicates, update the O/S, update virus sign, run scan check all good.
\015\012system should be all good now,
\015\012Hope this helps
