    Default Sony VAIO desktop too slow. Is it worth it to upgrade from VISTA to Windows 10?

    This desktop keeps on freezing all the time, it always runs very slow. Is it worth it to upgrade the OS? What else would I need to expand and/or install for it to be able to run Windows 10 without any issues?
    The specs are:
    Sony VAIO JS VGC-JS15S
    Intel Core TM Duo Processor E7200 (2.53Ghz)
    Windows Vista Home Premium
    Memory 2 GB
    Hard Disk Drive 320 GB

    If is not worth it, what would you recommend me to do to make sure everything is deleted completely (I already performed a recovery that was supposed to bring it to "out of the box state" and I didn't find much improvement anyway, but all files were deleted.. I do understand anything is completely deleted.. would using magnets help?), if I get rid of it, I want to make sure nobody could access sensitive info from it.

    Thank you in advance for your valuable help!

    Hello mcastro,

    I believe the computer is to old for windows 10 and would be asking for problems.

    We could take a look at things for you and see if there is any hope

    Everything gets download to the desktop and tools are "Run as administrator."

    Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.

    Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
    • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
    • Press Scan button.
    • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from.
    • Please copy and paste log back here.
    • The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe). Please also paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply.
