a couple of things stand-out, there isn't much physical memory in the machine, only 128Mb, most machines now will have 5-10 times that, so this will mean that some programs / websites will take a long time to load. You could increase the virtual memory, but this will still be slow.

The machine is quite old, the XP operating system could have lots of things slowing it down (like my mother-in-laws) and the speed sites load at could be more down to your internet connectivity, but it might be time for the upgrade

Hi Jamie

Your system specification is the bare minimum to run Windows XP. And to be honest as you have found it does not run it very well. When XP came out I read an article in PCFORMAT that the most minimum specification they would run XP on was 1.2 GHz and 512mb of ram. If you do not want to spend a lot of money I would do a reformat and downgrade to 2000 or ME.

That

Much as the Speed of the Processor seems slow the real problem here is the Memory. You need at least 256MB and should have 512MB to run XP properly. Once you have done that you will see a great improvement in the performance. If the PC can run DDR RAM then try getting some as that is better than the SDRAM I think you are using. Processor speed is always seen as the bottle neck but I've seen XP run very well on 750Mhz Laptops so I don't see the Processor being the problem.

It's probably not the spell check or dictionary causing the problems but I could be wrong.

Upgrade to Vista with the aero interface hehehe...

Taking up the space is probably spyware and adware etc. form lookin' at too much porn, perhaps not though.

No anti-virus? Wouldn't surprise me if your PC was rootkitted.
