After installing the OS did you install all appropriate drivers? Look in device manager - any yellow or red symbols?

OK. Please define "slower". Exactly what seems to be the problem. And why did you reinstall?

Based on your response the problem is limited to your browser, is that correct? And you didn't answer my question about why you did the reinstall in the first place.

I redid the laptop because I haven't done it in like 3 years and the kids had all kinds of games and stuff downloaded on it and also because I seen that windows XP will not be supported anymore coming up in early 2014. As far as the lagging is concerned it's not limited to just the browser, basically every application I open . like if I click to open the control panel it takes like a minute to open. It is a Dell Latitude 131L with 2 gigabyte of memory, I ran the dell Full System Diagnostic application and everything came back as passed.

Well, I'm currently responding to your post using an 8 year old Dell with XP that has NEVER been reformatted. I'm not a fan of reformatting for the sake of reformatting. And I'm not sure what the fact that support will end next year has to do with anything, but okay.

 

I suggest you run full system scans with both your installed AV and with MalwareBytes. Let's make sure you didn't pick up a bug somewhere along the way.

Microsoft Security Essentials and did a full scan and no problems were found. I also ran MalwareBytes , full scan also with no problems found..

Okay, let's keep going. Let's try a selective startup to see if anything loading with Windows is causing a slowdown.

 

Open msconfig and on the General tab choose "selective startup" (uncheck all three items) 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. This is clearly a time consuming procedure, but it is the best way to determine if some process loading with the system is the cause of your problem.

 

After you've isolated the cause, do not use msconfig to permanently disable the process. Instead, if it is a service go to START - RUN and type: services.msc (then press enter) and disable the service OR, if it a program, you can download & run a simple app such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) to enable, disable, or otherwise manage startup programs.
