type msconfig into the run box, in startup uncheck all the programs that do not need to be running at startup.
close down indexing etc etc, turn off aero, run a virus scan run a malwarebytes scan, remove your current anti virus and install ms security essentials.
apart from that, you bought a very basic very old fashioned system, with a very old cpu the old adage you get what you pay for fits. take it back to the store and invert an extra 200 dollars for a far better machine.

Just add more ram, your laptop will hold up to 8GB

Also you can run Ccleaner slim and clean out all unused files and also run the Ccleaner registry cleaner.

You don't want Windows 7 starter edition anyway. Follow the above advice.

CNET describes that unit as a budget mid-sizes laptop. That said, it should be able to run Windows 7 home just fine.

You actually have Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit (as listed above, unless this is not true), then all above is the right advice, except that your limit would be 4GB RAM, of which Windows will see somewhere around 3.2-3.5 GB RAM and the rest will be usable for your graphics. This, along with removing start up (msconfig, start tab) programs and a general monthly clean out (disk clean up and defrag) should get you in good shape.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

xp user, 1st review i read on a google search, http://reviews.cnet.com/laptops/tos... and lets face it, its not up to scratch for a modern machine, you get what you pay for, slow is a relative term where laptops are concerned, whats he comparing it too? and the user hasnt even commented on his thread.
in my opinion this laptop is a piece of junk.

Why would you downgrade to Windows 7 Starter? It is so limited functionality it doesn't even have an option to change the wallpaper.
