I am putting together a "new" pc this weekend running a 64 dual core & 4Gb RAM but I want to keep the present one to run day to day tasks.
Any help would be great thanks in advance
Welcome and glad you came here for help.
I will try by starting to ask you a few questions.
You know a 1.85Ghz is really slow for Windows 7.
If you know about your computer could you please add the information in your user profile so we can see what you have. If you don't know you can download a great program that will tell you what you have. It is called Belarc Advisor and is free. Everyone here uses it.

Just look at the top of the page for FREE DOWLOAD.
How much computer skills do you have? Can you go into your device manger and check and see if you have any EXCLAMATION points next to any of your hardware?
Go to CONTROL PANEL, SYSTEMS, DEVICE MANGER and look at the list.
This is enough for now and I'm sure we will have more questions to help you resolve your slow computer.
