My Toshiba is about 6 years old and runs fine. Yep Vista. But that 2nd stick of ram and cleaning out scheduled tasks really helps out.

Yeah, it works pretty good now.............a bit like that ASUS eeePC that we have discussed in another thread....... I put 2GB of RAM in that and it works real well now. In my opinion you take what Microsoft says is the MINIMUM specification and multiply by 2 to get to a comfortable computing experience..................go higher for better?

Another slow down is the temp files.
Clean them up nicely with TFC (Temp File Cleaner) by oldtimer.
Advantage over Ccleaner is there is no reg cleaner in it. Great for new users and I run it about weekly. The most cleaned off of a clients rig, 7.4 GB. That thing started flying afterward.
TFC only cleans temp folders. TFC will not clean URL history, prefetch, or cookies. Depending on how often someone cleans their temp folders, their system hardware, and how many accounts are present, it can take anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or more. TFC will completely clear all temp files where other temp file cleaners may fail. TFC requires a reboot immediately after running. Be sure to save any unsaved work before running TFC.

Sometime bad PC performance is caused by "garbage" in the system registry. It's a good idea to clean it regularly.

I would love getting $10 for every time I had to post, Time to do a clean install, because some one had used a reg cleaner and it messed up that computer. I could retire again.
