How many background tasks are you running? Whats you page file usage?

What do you mean by slow? Ultra slugish. Only when opening certain programs like photoshop or games?

adware/spyware could be a factor aswell, have you tried a virus scan and adware scan?

video cards wont make it run quicker. Only faster on 3d apps.

Remove unnecessary background tasks. And run for viruses and spyware

Like others have said, run Adware, Microsoft antispyware, make sure they are updated. This will clean up a lot of garbage. If your internet is slow, if you have broadband connection reduce your TempInternet files folder and clean that up. Run a defrag on your C: drive. Hope this helps

del the unneeded programse from the start menu~start up file. go run~msconfig, click start tab, uncheck unneeded programes. can do some reg changes to make it boot faster. umm try cntrl+alt+del, click processes end any unneeded programes running under the user name. remove unused or needed programes with add-remove programes. other then infections i got nothing eles.
