Get rid of your old computer and get something NEW! It is suggested you need to replace your computer every 3-5 years. Depending on when the warranty expires on the computer is when you need to start looking at something new.
Computers, just like everything else, gets dated. Overtime the hard drive gets full, the memory starts to deplete, and the processor becomes slow. You can upgrade those things as time permits but upgrading those components are just a band-aid and at some point you will need to look at replacing the whole computer.
Software is just as important to update. Software keeps your system up to date with security standards and usability. Most, if not all, software companies will start to phase out certain versions. Making it super hard for your employee to do their job.
Run an assessment on your network to ensure that all equipment you are using is up to date and still working properly. Create an I.T. roadmap and map out what can be replaced now and what needs to be replaced overtime. Create a budget to plan for the replacement of equipment.
