I would be more than happy to have a look at what upgrades your system can take.
Can you confirm the make and model of your system? If you are unsure as to what model it is please run the Crucial.com system scanner HERE and post the scan ID number.
Once we have this information we would be more than happy to look into your system for you.

I'm guessing that you've already installed the maximum RAM that your system can handle (or you can afford), so...
Ready Boost works surprisingly well. You can get a USB memory stick fairly cheap (I just picked up a 16G stick for $10.00) - I recomend 8 or 16 Gig. Install the stick, open "Properties" and click on the "Readyboost" tab. It's pretty self explanatory. This is a relatively low cost option, but like I said, works surprisingly well. Also clean up your system - remove unneeded startup programs, run defrag, and clean up your registry. If you're able to spend $70.00 (or more), install an SSHD (solid state hard drive) and run your Operating System and programs on the SSHD and use your other drive for data. This obviously requires a bit of work (and more money) but can really speed things up dramatically.

I also recommend you buying a SSD for installing the operating system. Just make sure that you purchase one with 128GB of storage as Win7 and 8 eat up space like nothing else.

Its better to install a new operating system like windows 7, l recommend it because it has been the most stable OS after Windows XP and get yourself a registry cleaner to repair your registry of any errors. Your pc will run faster, hopefully.

if you run a windows 7 32 bits version you won't see a big difference, you should just put some more memory in your pc and switch to windows 7 64 bits or 8...
