here can help?

(P3/500 MHz, 192MB RAM). Both ran XP, and I've tweaked the registry,
startup, and cleaned up spyware/adware/spamware using Spybot, AdAware,
and MS Anti-spyware beta. All task scheduling has been disabled.  Power
on both were set to Max performance option. HDs are same size and

Speed measurement: using stopwatch for measuring startup time of system
from total power off, wake up from hibernation, and launching MS Office

Anyone know what else I can do or way to speed up the 240X?"
