the best freeware in such a situation is to use your brain (free) and determine WHY it's slow..............

2nd Ccleaner and Malwarebytes. Also as the dr says, the brain lol. Get Googling and be a WHY people as per your great profile quote.

What,- a whole lot of stuff loading at boot time that you don't need in your RAM
How,- open a command box and type in msconfig. select the start up tab and turn off all the apps you don't use all the time eg. acrobat reader, msn messenger, quicktime...you'll see them. Then have a short arguement with xp about whether or not you know what you're doing and restart.
Why,- because you can

Drop it off a cliff.Don't forget to let go before it hits bottom
(where the ambulance waits).

You may need to re install windows to speed it up.

How old is said computer? Computers do seem to run a lot slower in old age. Well that's what I've found anyways. Could always go and get Tuneup Utilities, http://www.tune-up.com/download/ , and see if that helps. It's only a trial but it's worth having a look at.

linux is slow unless you are a wizard
(as in slow-er comparing dual boot fresh install xubuntu and windows 2k browsing the internet)
