Question Speed up my pc --- help!!

I'm not a complete computer novice, but I've tried everything I know of to speed up my computer. When I try to do anything now it takes forever. This pc has Vista and a Pentium 4 processor. The computer I had before had a celeron processor with Windows XP ..... and that was much faster than this Pentium 4 with Vista!!

I've installed over a hundred updates to Vista, plus Service Pack 1. Can anyone offer any info or advice to help me speed this thing up. I went from a celeron processor to a pentium 4 processor, so I expected it to be at least a LITTLE faster. I turned off some Windows features in Vista like the Indexing Services, Windows Meeting Space, etc.

Please, there MUST be someone out there who can help me! I don't want to give up on Vista. I know Vista is a RAM hog, but is there anything I can do without sinking more money into this pc?
