Windows 7: Windows 7 slow performance on my laptop

Windows 7 Professional x64

I cannot recommend upgrading any part until I see some performance charts. Go into the task manager, and post a screenshot of your Performance tab.

Sorry, I had to go out for the afternoon. Could you click "Show processes from all users" and sort the list descending by memory usage?

My ideas:
1. More RAM, try to install in equal pairs, not like 512 MB in one, and 1 GB in other. But 1 GB in one, 1 GB in other.
2. Download a trial version of Tune-Up Ulitilies. TuneUp America - TuneUp Utilities - Version 2010, use to Optimize your Performance.

3. Defrag regularly, download the Trial Version of O&O Defrag 12 Pro, Works great! O&O Software - O&O Defrag Pro Disk Defrag Software
4. Look at Under-Volting guide to keep your laptop cool, and performing well --> "Undervolting" Technique for Cooler Laptops!

5. Good Luck!
