I have 100 programs on my C Drive and I only use about 30 on a regular basis and the remaining 70 I use intermittently, but I do use them. I am sure this number of programs is slowing down my computer considerably. Is there a way that I can improve my situation and speed up my computer.

Some details on my computer are below from Belarc Advisor:

Processor              
2.20 gigahertz Intel Pentium Dual
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
1024 kilobyte secondary memory cache

Drive Volumes:

c: (NTFS on drive 0)     160.03 GB     113.62 GB free
d: (NTFS on drive 1)     320.07 GB     103.26 GB free
e: (NTFS on drive 2)     1000.20 GB     737.80 GB free

Memory Mdules
