    Replacing the bad ram stick is your BEST option to regain speed.

    You can try disabling some of your startup programs in hopes that will free up the existing ram to be used for what you want...but, once again, replacing the broken RAM is going to be your best option.

    What symptoms make you think the ram is broken? It is extremely rare for working RAM to break without catastrophic damage having been done to the rest of the system.

    Did you try putting the RAM back in and confirm that the problem reoccurs?

    Best option is to stop some of the unused program and clean regularly temporary internet files. And defragment the disk. It will really help u to increase speed.

    If you're on a budget, look at AVG free.

    Microsoft makes free antivirus software which actually works very well too.

    Ummmm. . . . . . Microsoft would probably be the best bet!

    Can you put the ram back in just to confirm the ram has gone?
