Nowhere in post #1 do you say how much RAM is in that computer.
Its motherboard supports 2 GB(1 GB X 2) of DDR400 RAM.
Is it maxed out with 2 GB?

--------------------------------------------------------

Since we have no idea what's installed and running in the background, do the following:
Click Start, then type MSCONFIG in the search or run box, then press the Enter key.
When the small "System Configuration Utility" window appears, click the "Startup" tab.
Write down ONLY the names in the "Startup Item" column that have a checkmark next to them.
If the "Startup Item" column isn't wide enough to see the entire name of any of them, widen the column.
Submit those names here in a vertical list.
Make sure to spell them EXACTLY as you see them there.

The Intel Pentium IV 2.66 GHz is a 10-year old single-core processor that has a benchmark score of only 257.

http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Pentium+4+2.66GHz&id=1071

Considering how processor-hungry and memory-hungry Windows XP and its programs and computing functions have gotten over the year, that computer is going to struggle with the processor and memory it has.
