I think that the problem is not that the computer
is slow, but that it become slower and slower
over time. Therefore, no matter what upgrade is
done to it, it will end up also slower and slower
until the original problem was corrected.

Computers do have the nasty habit of becoming slower
and slower over time if used heavily and many
obscure causes are responsible for this.

The best cure is to reinstall the operating system.
This problem occured at my job on all the PC's and
after investigating this matter we decided that the
best cure is to reinstall the operating system every
year on each computer.
