HP Pavilion running painfully slow

Hi all, 

 

New to this and not much of a technical whizz but here goes....

 

I have recently acquired a HP pavilion PC running windows vista which I was hoping to use for storage, programs that my chromebook can't run and playing some of my old school PC games.  It was sooo slow to boot up and navigate on that I restored it to factory settings.

 

Having set it all back up it is still slow.  By slow I mean slow to boot up and open programs.  Simply switching between tabs causes the computer to freeze for around 60 seconds. Basically the thing is unusable in this condition.  It is an old machine (2007 I think) however I was wondering if there was a problem that I could fix to give this old hunk of junk a new lease of life?

 

I have managed to install iobit advanced system care and am currently giving it a scan

 

Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated

 

Many thanks

 

Paddy
