When did they upgrade? clean install? purchase? same computer? what are the computer specs? Make sure vista is fully patched and all the device drivers are up to date.

Honestly we can post all day and not give you the right answer until you give us mone info

And how much junk do they have starting when the computer starts? Just take a look at the system tray, for starters. Couple of IM clients, printers, scanners, iTunes, or whatever all running all the time will do that.

Turn them off, and the users can start them from the Start menu when needed.

Disable the piece'o'crap widgets bar

And aero.

Turn off as many bells and whistles as you can.

Vista chews everything you throw at it, so don't work it as hard and it won't be so hungry.

Service Packs...

Vista was a dog on most systems pre SP1. Your issues are to be expected from any Vista machine that hasn't had the service packs installed.
