I do a lot of graphic design using Photoshop and Illustrator CS3 and lately my computer is crawllllling when I try to use it. I know I need more RAM but I was wondering if you all could look at my configuarion and let me know what I should upgrade or change to get better performance as related to graphic design? I know only a little about hardware so I could really use your help. Thank you so much in advance!
Here's the info I could gather from the computer, some you may need or some you may not but I wasn't sure, if you need more please let me know where to find it and I will!! Thank you so much.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
