My PC is extremely slow in startup and opening office programs. I'm using win XP home and office 2003. Is my problem too little memory?

yes, the minimum for xp is 256, by having 192, looks like you have 64mb onboard graphics. Most recommend 512mb, I'd suggest a graphics card too, as onboard uses system resources.

Try some house keeping, uninstall what you don't need, take a look at your startup remove whats not necessary, defrag the HDD, run something like click here its safe to delete all it finds.
