I agree with JEservices. As Windows programs get newer they use more Ram. In Control Panel click on System to open it and you will see the amount of free resources as well as the amount of installed Ram under the General Tab. Do this with no programs running and before you connect to the internet. Post back with those two numbers and we may have some ideas for you.
After an upgrade such as yours you will need to reinstall your programs as they are no longer associated with your current operating system.
I would suggest you go into add/remove programs in Control Panel and uninstall what you can from there first. That is always a better idea than trying to reinstall a (supposedly) already installed program.
To see if a partition was created you can go into Windows Explorer and look at the Drive letters. Having said that, if a partition was created you would have lost all the previous data on your hard drive. See if you can find something you had saved such as something in My Documents, or a picture or an mp3 or mpg. If you recognize something that is still there then there is no partition.
If this WAS an upgrade rather than a fresh install, and you selected the option to save your previous configuration you will probably find an entry in add/remove programs that will say something like uninstall Win2K. If you select that and click remove, you should go back to the way it was, however, you may find more than a few problems cropping up as a result of the rollback.
