dont know about that stuff but i think your graphics card might be slowing it down as well. try disabling aero to see if that helps speeding things up

actually what the problem is for your computer for being slow is that it is a single core processor with only 1 gig of ram. It is recommended for a dual core processor with at least 1.5 gig ram. when you normally install vista, it should run the best it can after you install the updates. I am running a Dual-Core 3.0 ghz with 2 gig ram, and have not had a single problem with speed yet.

ur graphics card is way too slow for vista. u should have at least 2x the specs of the minumum requirements. should have 256 or 128 graphics and yes a dual core wouldnt hurt

u shouldnt have bought it. the clean install isnt really gonna help. if i were u, in would find my receipt and get a refund then go back to xp if i wasnt gonna uupgrade.
