Do you mean as in your computer is running slow or your screen resolution is slow?
If its the first I would suggest deragmenting your hard drive, and also running this program http://www.ccleaner.com/download/.

the problem is vista. the more you install/try to do the slower it will be on 1gb ram. defrag, run c cleaner and do the usual cleanup things. oh and msconfig!
