either get a new computer or re install windows will speed it up a bit will be almost like the day you got it. But Celeron 1Ghz is very slow.

hemendra06, agreed sorta, it's not the fastest thing going, but several things can exacerbate the situation. Slowness is one of the more common complaints heard and it can have a number of causes. I'll enumerate a few of the more common and we'll hope that hits you.
Speed depends on memory and a lot of machines are right on the borderline when it comes to meeting required minimums so any added 'memory hog' has an adverse effect. Add memory?
Sorta along those same lines is your startup menu. Lots of software writers think there's no possible way we could exist without their masterpiece so they put it in the startup menu. That usually only causes slow booting, but ... Take a look at what you have running in the background and be sure there aren't extras.

An overzealous firewall reading each item over and over can significantly slow things. Kinda along those same lines are temporary files. Search for *.tmp,*.chk,~*.*, .chk (c/p so there’re no errors) You should only have 1 file containing your currently active files. Delete any others found (tip: select all and delete. It’ll tell you which is active and can’t be deleted.). Distinguish between a 'start' problem and a 'run' problem. They're related, but not the same.

A common 'running' ailment is a file called 'index.dat'. It gets read every time and can take quite a while if it’s too bloated. It's like a log file and keeps a record of every site you visit on the web. Empty, it's 32K, but it can grow HUGE. It's a protected file and can't be deleted by normal methods. CCleaner (free @: http://www.ccleaner.com/) can get rid of it when it’s ticked (not to worry, it gets rebuilt EMPTY on the next boot.). May not be your deal at all, but won’t cause any harm to try. I run it often . Some things MUST run to keep Windows happy, you can safely delete others found starting. Find a list of 'musts' @:
There're others, but those are some of the more common. Suggested further reading: http://speedupslowcomputer-shelly.b...
