I'm losing memory and my programs are really slow

  lonemascot 17:36 15 Dec 2005

I have a a 5 user desktop. the other user desktops seem to run at an ok speed, but my one is well slow. i have 512mb RAM installed which should be fine for small office programs and surfing the net but everything takes so long to load up and my 2 meg broadband isn't exactly fast to load up pages either.

Any ideas to help combat the problem?

Should also have said :-

remove unwanted start up programs from MSconfig just leave antivirus and firewall running.
