Slow Virtual TS on Hyper-V

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
I currently have a virtual terminal server running on a 2008 Server with Hyper-V.  The TS is running 2008 Server.  There are about 30 thin clients that connect to this TS, all in a junior high school, and not necessarily all are used.  This virtual TS has two processors and 8GB RAM.  The users are complaining about how slow this machine is and how it frequently locks up when trying to do more than one task, such as Word and IE at the same time.

Does anybody have any suggestions what I can do to make this server work better for these users?  Do I need to add more processors, more memory?
