Installing more memory will give you the most performance increase for the money. If you motherboard allows it, you may also look into upgrading to a faster processor. You will definitely want to get more memory first though....

Generally 128 MB is enough memory for just Win2000... but Adobe Illustrator is resource hungry. 256 MB coupled with your slow processor just won't cut it.

More RAM would help, a faster processor will help. If you can only afford one, then double the ram to 512 MB at least.

Depending on your budget, you might even look into having someone build you a new computer.

Systemboards are approx $100
512 MB RAM approx $100
Processor is the major cost $100-300 or more

In addition to adding more RAM, a good hard drive cleaning is a good idea.

Start by deleting any links in the recent folder for each profile that you do not need.

Then, clear out the Windows\Temp and Internet cache files.

I don't recall if W2K has a built in defragmentation tool.
If not, you can get one here:

It looks like they have dropped the free version, but you can still get a free trial.
