Slow Server

Ok I have a server 2000 that is running very slow.

Here are the stats on the cpu

Intel Pentium 4
cpu - 2.40GHZ
261,620 KB of physical RAM
53,996 KB of physical RAM available

The C: drive has 111 GB
107 GB is used and 4 GB is free

The disk is fragmented but I have run the windows defragmenting utility and also smart defrag 2 which have helped some but not a lot the disk is still fragmented.

I have also ran disk cleanup and ccleaner.

My question is what should I do next? Do I need to replace the C: drive with a larger drive?

Im lost here please help!!!!!!

Your HAL and base hardware is going to be different so, you will need to reinstall or repair the OS but I would recommend you change hardware and OS

Well first thing is you are running on Windows 2000 Server which is not supported anymore.

Second thing is you are not running on a powerful CPU.

Third thing is you are runnign 256MB of RAM which is extremely lower.

My recommendation is to purchase a new server or add at least 4 GB of memory

If I was to purchase a new server could I use the hard drive out of the old one so that I don't have to reinstall and configure my server?
