1  >   My Computer acts sluggish, slow. My computer is even stalling in receiving messages – it has been in an idle position because it’s slow.  I know I need to get a new computer soon.  In the meantime, because you are the king of computers – can you suggest something I could do to speed things up? Right now it is trying to receive 69 messages and  besides a bad ISP connection,  too much mail.  I have been on the phone for over 2 hours now with my  internet,  web server people.  They said that because my junk mail and inbox was overloaded (too full), this was causing the emails to backup and not come through.  They set me up with Mozilla Thunderbird email account so I am using this now (until I can clean out my other accounts)
.
As you know there are 2 ways to access your emails..
– One way is directly on your home pc..
– and the second one is at the remote server initially..
at leasy a few times what you may want to do is screen the email at the remote server first and next the screened  mail you like let it come to your home pc.
.
Next I use at least 4 different emails..
-I use one my main contact one..
-I use one solely  where I know that the people will send me junk mail..
-I use one for the close, personal persons, a confidential one
-I have one as a spare, for rare important contacts..
.
It also could be that your existing email software is corrupted.. reinstall it.. http://email.about.com/od/outlookexpresstroubles/qt/et_reinstall_oe.htm

2 How can I speed up or improve my Home PC Microsoft computer Performance overall 
Do  see
.
More free advice..
.
1 Slow computer… check your internet  service and do see how fast  it really is..  do a speed test – measure it..  see  http://www.speedtest.net/ or http://www.internetfrog.com/mypc/speedtest/ or    http://www.acanac.ca/speedtest/  and first make sure no other programs are running in the background..
Many Internet service providers really do not give you their full advertised, promised speed.. or they falsely slow down your speed, cap it during peak periods..  if that is the case phone and complain to them http://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2008/05/18/on-how-to-deal-with-it/
.
2 Slow computer..  the number one reason the average person  has about 300 virus on their computer still and no one program removes them all…. try this free program http://www.safer-networking.org/
.
3 Slow computer..  increase your memory on the motherboard http://www.pchardware.co.uk/install-computer-memory-ram.php
.
4 Slow computer,,,   another good way to speed your computer is install a USB stick flash drive.SD Memory  and use it to increase your memory http://www.coddedtech.info/2012/02/increase-your-memory-card-or-usb-stick.html
.
5 Slow computer..   add a larger and faster hard drive .. preferably an external one, they are almost the same price these days. http://computer.howstuffworks.com/adding-a-hard-drive.htm
.
6 Slow computer..   as for “Can I go into Perhaps   into tools or do something so the speed is sufficient, could I  get a program  such as a TuneUp Utilities  system  optimzation utilities suite;  In my own view all this mostly is a myth, it does snot really improve much,  and it is not possible or practical at all.. for me this is mostly a rip off, many of the software that claims to fix it or it really tends to do you harm your computer rather  as well if you do not know what you are doing.. so do use with caution..   Here you can try these  free programs http://www.snapfiles.com/get/puranutils.html  or  http://www.snapfiles.com/get/comodocleaner.html or http://www.snapfiles.com/get/nirlauncher.html or http://www.snapfiles.com/get/freemiumsys.html or
