My computer runs extremely slowly when working within, and going to/from, Windows XP. It is mostly running Microsoft Dynamics POS system, and the startup and shutdown of this program is slow as well.. It had 512mb ram, and I added an identical stick but it seems to make no difference. It is an HP rp5000(DK779AV) Intel Celeron CPU 2.5ghz, 1gb ram, 75g hdd, 13g used. XP service pack 3 (but ran the same with sp2).

The computer appears to be seeing the additional ram. Is there something I need to do to have it use it? Or is the slowness due to another issue?
