First thing I would think of is getting more memory - 9 out of 10 times, that will speed an old computer up.

Go to crucial.com and go through their memory advisor.

If it's not memory, then you may need a reinstall if it is that slow.

Hi Buildingit..

This is one of the common issue faced by many of the users. After searching a lot I have found reasons which slow down the processing of the Computer.

I have described some of the main reasons and it will surely help you to resolve your problem.

Just follow the following steps to improve performance of the System:-

Close Unnecessary Background Applications: -

One of the main reasons for the slow performance of the computer is background applications. To overcome this close the unnecessary application that are not required from the task manager (Ctrl + Shift + Delete)

Delete the temporary files: -

In the Run, type %temp% and press enter. From here delete all the temporary items

Run ScanDisk, chkdsk, Defrag to verify there is nothing physically wrong

Scan your system for malware, Viruses

Update your systems  Window and Driver

Run a registry cleaner

Hope this will work for you

first - you need to look at the model details - how much ram will it support (many take max 4 GB), and what disk it has
 - note that 32 bit is also limited to 4 GB
also run a disk diag on the disk drive - it is often the cause of slow performance; i use the UBCD for this (see link below)

then look if this is an upgrade already or not; if it is an upgrade - best go for a fresh install

the best steps for speeding up a system with hardware are :
increase ram to max, or at least 8 GB
install an SSD drive

Hardware diagnostic CD    UBCD

go to the download page, scroll down to the mirror section, and  click on a mirror to start the download
Download the UBCD and make the cd   <<==on a WORKING PC, and boot the problem PC from it
Here 2 links, one to the general site, and a direct link to the download

since the downloaded file is an ISO file, eg ubcd527.iso - so you need to use an ISO burning tool
if you don't have that software, install cdburnerXP : http://cdburnerxp.se/

If you want also the Ram tested - run memtest86+ at least 1 full pass,  - you should have NO errors!
 
For disk Diagnostics run the disk diag for your disk brand (eg seagate diag for seagate drive)  from the HDD section -  long or advanced diag !  (runs at least for30 minutes)

http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html             download page

**  you can make a bootable cd - or bootable usb stick

**** as for virus, and malware, run these  :
