    will post computer specs at the end.

    as the title say i have upgraded my winXP to win7(got 4GB ram) and noticed a slowdown on almost every program that i used,
    at first i was thinking maybe my processor couldnt handle win7 but then found out it could, which is why i ask for help here.

    Did you use the Win 7 Upgrade Advisor to see if your computer could be upgraded to Win 7? Perhaps it could not, and that's your problem.
