    Kindly give us complete specs of your system, along with OS details including update status.

    Belarc Advisor can give a reasonably good overview of your system's state; so try that out and perhaps get rid of things you no longer need.

    Please download CPUZ 1.56 - 32bit version (click here), and install it, once you run it go to about tab and save its out put in either html or txt format, and attach the resulting file with your next post.

    Well I am sure a system with 256MB RAM can be reasonably slower even while running windows xp, and as this system is reasonably old with installation of new stuff it may well have gotten even slower.

    Anyway, to start with can you please tell me how much free space in C:\ drive? Because lack of free space can make such system catastrophically slow. I'd suggest you to have a close look at your my documents folder as well; and remove anything which you do not like.

    Which internet browser do you use ? Clean out its cache.

    Also check your file system's health, to do so please follow these instructions:

    1. Click on Start, then go to programs, and to Accessories
    2. Look for "Command Prompt"
    3. Once you found it, Right Click on it, and select 'Run as Administrator'
    4. In the appearing window type chkdsk /r

    It will tell you that it will run the test on next boot, that is fine. Type exit and press enter.

    Reboot.

    Once you have done the above, I also need you to make a list of software you have installed on this computer. See which ones you need/use, and which ones you rarely use, I'd suggest getting rid of such programs by uninstalling them. Regards

    alright i looked at the C drive and it says this (used space: 15,020,077,056 bytes 13.9 GB) and (free space: 44,942,213,120 bytes 41.8 GB) and then it says (capacity: 59,962,290,176 bytes 55.8 GB) so let me know if thats what info. you needed or not

    Hi LittleBigNDN

    I think Archean hit the two major points that also ocurred to me when i skimmed your thread

    1. Memory

    One problem: You're running with 256MB memory. That's the original minimum when XP was first released in 2001! Part of the problem with all new updates, enhancement, video graphics, new tools that are added by Microsoft or yourself, they really start needing more memory.

    Looks like you have a Dimension 4500. I checked Crucial memory website
    > The max for your machine is 1GB memory (you have only 2 memory slots. Max memory for each slot on your dimension is 512MB)
    > Looks like would cost about $50
    Tho you might need ask a local store if you're not familiar and comfortable with changing the memory yourself.

    2. Software bloat

    I suspect your second best bet is to do a clean Windows reinstall. Do you have your XP CDs?

    Over time, there's lots of crapware that sneaks onto your machine. My guess is long time since you reinstalled? If you do reinstall, there's some tips / preperations you should do before hand makes the reinstall much smoother...

    /* edit */
    But as quick aside, if you're also having IE problems, also try reseting IE
