Please define "faster" (what is slow?). What specific problems do you currently have?

it takes a long time to load when you first turn it on and any program you click on takes a long time to come up. like if you click on my computer it will take like a minute. its just all in all slow when opening things and loading

1) What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

2) What are your system specs (specifically processor and ram)?

3) Open msconfig and choose selective startup (disable everything from loading) and reboot. Does the problem still occur? If not, start adding items back to msconfig one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the problem reappears and you'll have identified the offending process.
