i have a HP pavilion zv 5000 wireless laptop (since 2004). windows x/p o/s. intel(r) pentium(r) 4 CPU 2.80 ghz 192 MB of ram. netgear wireless n 300 router i run the avira personal anti-virus windows defender anti-spyware spybot search and destroy- no viruses have been detected. google chrome is my browser i purchased advanced systemcare professional. the laptop is very slow, booting up, browsing the internet even with chrome, working on word, powerpoint, excel, etc. i hate to give it up because it has a large screen,and it is durable. is there anything that i can do to speed it up? I am intermediate tech-wise, but my son can do anything with a computer. if i have to install more memory, or anything else, he can do it. i've re-installed xp twice already using the recovery disk. it ran faster for awhile, but that doesn't last long. please advise. thank you.
