It shouldn't be slow with 4GB RAM, so if it's got less than that, add more RAM. For 32-bit Windows don't go beyond 4GB RAM as Windows won't be able to use all of it. For 64-bit windows you can install as much RAM as that laptop model supports, which is 8GB If it was quicker with Windows 7 installed, then go back to Windows 7.
