    you might need to replace the memory if its running that slow. when you install it do you get a blue screen ?

    ok u can increase the speed of ur system by upgrading ur memory means RAM make it 512MB or 1GB for better performance. if u can change the 18GB harddisks and buy a 40GB or 80GB harddisk it is very cheap now. ur system is slow because of the slow clock speed 1.3ghz and the low memory.
    i think my suggestion solves ur problem. if yes mail me. good luck!!!!!!!!!!

    The last time I had a problem like that, my PC’s hard drive was starting to go. Given that you have a first generation Pentium 4 PC (5+ years old), this is a likely possibility. While you can purchase a replacement hard drive, it may be time to consider a new PC purchase.

    Your problem is not an uncommon one. If you re-installed windows, it will do a lot of good for your computer. However, it you didn’t re-install it under the proper conditions. It can cause the situation that you have now. Ill explain

    Re-installing your operating system has created a lot of duplicate copies of files located in your registry. These unnecessary keys use a lot of your computer resources and eat up RAM and free space. This is a recipe for a computer lockup, slowdown or a freeze. Scan your registry if you pull up more than 30-40 errors or un-used keys, clean your registry. This is the problem. If this doesnt work the page below gives you information on registry cleaners and other tweaks to stop freezes and slowdowns.

    Hope this helps

    Wow, your PC is toooooooo bad. You should use P4 2Ghz (minimum), 1GB RAM. And your HDD’s capacity is tooooooooo small. I think you must change everything.
