I am a newbie and a total comp idiot. For that I apologize. I have no idea what information you all need from me so I will post the problem.

I have a Dell Dimension 4700, Windows XP. My computer is less than a year old and it runs very very slow. It takes about 10-15 seconds for a page to load on IE and Mozilla Firefox.

When I attempt to open an application (like ACDSee) it takes up to a minute to load.

Is there any way to get my computer moving as fast as when I first received it? Please excuse me if these questions seem stupid, like I said, I don't know what to do and it is so frustrating.
