comment Is my computer slow due to lack of swap
Once again thank you for the replies and comments. I have now created a larger swap file instead, as the system already had the maximum 4 primary partitions and therefore would not let me create further. So my system is now stable but a bit slow... Next step will be to install lubuntu once I get to an Internet connection that will allow this. I then think that I have matured enough to remove windows all together so, sometime in near future, my plan is to start over and install lubuntu on a clean hard disk with the proper partitions.

comment Is my computer slow due to lack of swap
Thank you very much for this comprehensive reply. Have looked at lubuntu and xubuntu and this definitely seems like option worth trying. Will this simply replace the shell or are these othere distributions that will replace ubuntu? What about the already installed software? Will this stay installed when switching to lubuntu?
