I have a very slow desktop with Windows XP. Everything is slow, even when I type things the letters appear slowly. I've done everything in the slow start tutorial, and while start up sped up a bit, the rest is quite slow. It's old (2003) so I am sure the processor isn't up to today's standards, but I'd let to get it going at least a little faster if possible. Advise is greatly appreciated.

Have you ever opened the desktop and given it a good cleaning,with a can of compressed air?

Also re-seat your hardware.
