Vista dog slow - 2.2c2d + 3g ram

Just threw in 2 gigs of extra ram on my Mom's new computer, making it 3 gigs. The thing is still slow. It lags opening programs, closing programs, and just overall is poor in preformance.

Any tricks to speed this thing up? Enabling or Disabling?

It's got Dell Automated PC Tuneup installed (which insists there is only 2 gigs installed), Google desktop, Dell Support Centre.

I've installed: Steam + 2 games (that don't work at all), AVG free edition, CCleaner, and Visual Tip Task (because she has Vista basic).

Could Vista basic be the problem? Should I throw down another $30 for whatever the next version is? I'm keeping an eye out for firmware updates and software updates.

Thanks in advance.
