CPU 100% and Physical Memory at 84% HELP!

I recently upgraded the study pc to windows 7 ultimate from windows xp home edition. After installing it came to my attention that the computer is running terribly slow, realising this I opened the task command and noticed that the CPU was at 100% and Physical Memory at 84%, These levels never change much although the Physical memory goes from 80 to 95. I would really appreciate some help and have included some screen shots. Thanks
David

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (64-bit)
 
 

Hello there, well, as i see, you're running Windows 7 with only 512MB of RAM and have Aero enabled? that can't be good for your RAM. of course it'll be always high. Windows 7's requierements are at least 1GB of RAM minimum, but 2GB recommended.

What processor do you have?

Go to start and type on the search bar "msinfo32" without the quotes, right click it and "run as administrator".

Maximize that window, take a screenshot of it and attach it here, please

Or, go to start, computer, right click it and Properties, same thing.. maximize that window, take a screenshot and post it here

Okay, you either have a Celeron D 345/346/347 Processor, and 512MB of RAM, which i would say it's DDR-333 or DDR-400, that's way too low to run Windows 7 smoothly.

Sorry about the bad news, but you either need an upgrade of the PC parts, or you need a downgrade to Windows XP

I mean, for 200$ you could get a Combo in Newegg that would increase your performance abruptly.

Here: Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

It's a good and cheap upgrade, plus you'd have a smooth Windows 7 experience, because a Celeron D Processor + 512MB of RAM, could be anything but smooth

Sorry again to bring the bad news.

Or even on a real tight budget, for 160$ you could have this:

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

Although i'd go for the 200$ one.. it's a Quad Core vs a Dual Core processor.

My .02 Cents
