I have a P4 1.8 / 256 RAM and sometimes when i open for example, internet explorer or another program it takes a little while to load, is it because my computer is too slow or something? even if something else is running, it should still be fast since i have 256 RAM and my comp is P4 1.8 ????

defrag.....clean out temp files/recycle bin by using disk clean up utlity.
then go here http://beam.to/spybotsd
and download "spybot" ..........check for updates and run the program,let it delete whatever is highlighted in red.

then go here http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/
and download "startuplist" run it,copy/paste the list in a post here. and some kind person will take a look at what you have running in the background.......and maybe trim it down a little.

good luck;)

The one thing that I noticed on your system that will really slow it down is Find fast. A definite resource hog. Disable that if you can.

There are a lot of reasons for your system to be slow, the speed is limited by the slowest component in the link. Frequently, disk speed is overlooked when evaluating performance. I recently changed out a Maxtor 7200 RPM drive for one of the new WD 7200 LE 8mb cache drives in this system, and system speed was significantly and noticeably increased. You should also check and make sure your drives are running in UDMA mode, and not in PIO mode, which will really slow things down.
