How to speed up a very very very slow computer in XP?

We have a computer which is incredibly slow. I have tryed all sorts of things to speed it up but all has failed. I am going to upgrade the ram to 2GB but I still want to make it much quicker. It is running XP home edition. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    As you said You have 2gb ram still your pc is slow.
    Do some simple steps to make your pc run faster.
    First if you have many programs that run in start up, disabled that programs. How you do this.
    open RUN
    Type: msconfig and press enter
    Window open click on “Startup ” tab untick the unnecessary programs that you dont want to open at run time . like messanges or something.

    Another reason of slow down pc is the virus problem… scan your pc with good antivirus like nod32 and delete viruses permanently.

    Back up all data (pic’s, documents, music) and re-install (from your factory disks) the operating system.
    This sounds drastic, but as any OS ages (as XP is doing) it’s files get corrupted or misplaced, and it just needs a good housekeeping to set things right again.

    Registry is the most part of windows system, it is a database which record what you have done to your computer.For example, when your program was installed and also when it was uninstalled is also recorded. Those spyware is also stored in the windows registry by the operating system. They will make your registry mass up.They stay into your registry, collect your key data and sent information to the person who sited spyware on the Internet in the first place. Then your computer will not work properly. You will encounter some computer disaster such like blue screen of death,computer freeze, error message poping up,etc. Meanwhile, spyware will transfer lot of information from Internet automatically. It make your registry overburden. As long as you work on the net, it will download and upload date.
