Answers :

Upgrade your memory not expensive easy to do...\015\012or stop running so many programs at once by elimating some startup programs by going to start then run then type msconfig go to startup and remove anything you don't have to have starting with your computer you can always start them later
See if you can upgrade the memory (Random Access Memory), that will give you the most boost. Second thing you can do is remove any unneccesary programs that start with operating system, you can press start and type msconfig and go into the the startup tab to uncheck what you may not need during the bootup. third thing to do is organize the desktop if you have too many icons, put them into folders of each category and finaly defragment your hard drive by right clicking on the c: drive letter and going into tools, defragment, this will speed up your comp niceley.
