Well you can change some configurations to make it run faster or look into overclocking your system. Or just upgrade the whole thing.

Check the registry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run for anything that you do not running at Windows startup. You can also substitute LOCAL_MACHINE for CURRENT_USER.
