    Add more RAM.

    Reduce the number of programs running in the background.

    Reduce the amount of "eye candy" and graphic effects.

    Keep the buildup of temp files and spyware cleaned out.

    Uninstalled all unused and unneeded programs(especially the outdated ones), then delete their leftover folders and files.

    Empty the Recycle Bin, then run Disk Defragmenter.

    I did a hard drive format and fresh install of Windows ME about a week ago on a 6-year old desktop with an Intel Pentium III 900 MHz processor and 256 MB of PC133 SDRAM, and that dinosaur flies. (y)
