Is this ONLY when on the web OR without browsing.
If when connected download this.

Hi !

PC running slow, due to lots of causes. It depends on your Hardware configuration too. You can increase your RAM and Processor.First remove all unnecessary file from START>MSCONFIG>STATRUP.
after that START>ACCESSORIES>SYSTEM TOOL>DISK FRAGMENTATION

Thanks

I do not think you need to increase your ram. Albeit that 512 Mb ram will NEVER be IDEAL, it is adequate unless you are gaming or attempting heavy graphics work and a 2Ghz processor is OK.
It would not be enough to run Windows 7 but is adequate for XP.
the disk DEFRAG is part of the link I sent you back in POST 2., just one of the many options.
DO NOT PLEASE remove anything from startup or services on msconfig UNTIL I or someone else has advised you. It is very likely necessary, BUT stopping a service that is needed or removing a startup item that is required will cause problems.
After you have run ATF in post 5.
Run this please and post results.

Attach the results as a wordpad or other doc. PLEASE ENSURE YOU DELETE any personal data and YOUR PRODUCT KEYS
