You need to follow some simple steps to boost up your speed. Before\015\012using the 3rd party utilities I suggest you to start with windows own\015\012utilities. Perform disk clean up,
\015\012
\015\012Start> All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Clean up
\015\012
\015\012Reduce the quantity of startup programs simple type MSCONFIG after open\015\012the Run option and enter. uncheck the non essential applications (You\015\012can consider non essential software aside hotkey utility and\015\012antivirus). After click on apply and OK restart prompt will appear.\015\012"Dont Restart"
\015\012
\015\012Go to My Computer, Right click on C drive and choose "Properties" click\015\012the Tools tab and click on the check now button in Disk error\015\012checking area. Check both of the boxes when it prompt. And click on OK.\015\012It will inform you that system unable to check as its in use therefore\015\012it will start when you restart computer. It will perform 5 steps error\015\012checking. It might take up to 1 hour.
\015\012
\015\012Once computer start it will be definitely faster. however you have\015\012still many ways to choose better performance over some value added\015\012features. Like you can choose best performance instead of best\015\012appearance. Also you can disable System Restore feature this will\015\012increase performance and speed while feature will be not available.

\015\012Please post more if further assistance needed

\015\012Good Luck.
Hi Rhem,
\015\012I can't seem to get the Expery chat to work, but will wonk on that issue.
\015\012First, uninstall RegistryCleanFix.
\015\012Next, get this antispyware, and see if any bugs moved in,,
\015\012
\015\012http://www.superantispyware.com/
\015\012
\015\012For 512 meg ram, that swap file/Virtual Memory is set pretty high. I would look at setting it to let the system control it, as a test.
\015\012How many Icons are by your time? These are programs starting, and can use up a lot of memory.
\015\012You can disable any unneeded ones by going to Start>run>and type in MSCONFIG. In the startup tab, you can disable any that aren't needed. As for the "which ones are needed" :D,, we would have to know what ones are in there. Try the antispyware fix, and let us know if we need to go further.
\015\012Here is a list of startup programs, and what they do. http://www.castlecops.com/StartupList.html

\015\012Good Luck!
