I have a Windows 7 Home Premium , 64-bit OS, Acer Aspire 5253, 3GB Ram,AMDC-50 Processor, 1 GHz, with Internet cable modem, with 10mb download speed. My GF with a similar Notebook PC uses the building's Wi-fi network, via my router and the speed is 5X faster than mine. Whether I'm using a Windows program like Word or Open Office or Windows Photo Gallery, etc. or the Internet(I have I/E, Firefox and Torch/Chrome), startups, surfing the net, E-mail, all show up slow. One tech guy at the local electronics store told me to remove Windows and reinstall it(I have a legal version). Another guy said to upgrade from 3GB Ram to 4. What to do?
