You can try adding more ram if its feasable to do so. or use the disk clean up and defrag feature on xp. or you can remove things in your documents like pix, music, etc and put them on cds or dvds for safekeeping in the event of a computer malfunction so they wont be lost forever. that should help speed things up.when you go into the add/remove programs see whats in there that you use and know what it is. if its not something you dont know what it is leave it alone as it doesnt do any harm to stay there.if its something you dont use and you dont want it and know what it does than you can safely remove it.
