At first GTA 4 had killed my computer and then I did the following:

1. Make a .txt file in your gta root folder called commandline and type in the following:

-width 800
-height 600
-refreshrate 60
-texturequality 0
-renderquality 0
-viewdistance 0
-detailquality 0
-shadowdensity 0
-availablevidmem 2.0
-percentvidmem 100

2. Download the contig.exe that will basically defragment the huge gta 4 folder to make it easier accessible for your computer:
a) Download the contig.exe
b) Copy the contig file to your gta 4 root (default installation) folder and then create a shortcut of it on your desktop.
c) Right click on the contig on your desktop and rename it to whatever you want.
d) Right click on the contig on your desktop , then select properties and then on the end of the game path add "-s" withouth the quotes and make sure that you have made a spyce between the path and the -s.
e) Then run the contig on your desktop and wait for it to finish, it should be working for about 20 minutes depending on your CPU speed.

3. Download gamebooster and run it (it is a free software that makes a lot of difference in gaming):

4. Download Gta 4 downgrader:
a) First download it (Link:http://www.filestube.com/3280ed0871ed5d1503ea/go.html)
NOTE: The archived file will ask you for a password, the password is 1234
b) Then put it in your gta4 root folder and run it.
c) After it has finished restart your pc.

5. Download the Texture replacement :
a) Download it (Link:http://rapidshare.com/#!download|562l36|186766678|gtxd.rar|29609 OR http://filetram.com/4shared/gtxd-gtaiv-rar-3607960729)
b) Put it in your GTA 4 folder in C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto IV\pc\data\cdimages and replace the original file (or better do a backup of it).

6. Then when you are ingame open the task manager and then go to processes and eng the launchgtaiv.exe and the explorer.exe , and then right click on the gtaiv.exe process and set the priority to realtime.

7. Download it (http://rapidshare.com/files/176145887/visualSettings.dat) place this file in your Grand Theft Auto IV/Common/Data/ this will reduce the weather effects = +10 fps.

* Try these tools on your risk, I am not responsible for any kind of damage to your "Ancient PC".
* Please make a back-up of those files which you are going to replace for fixing lag.
* By applying visualsettings.dat and gta 4 texture patch you are going to ruin your graphics (low settings), so don't complain about low graphics.
