    We need more information. How much RAM do you have? How big is your HDD and how much is used/free? Have you done any virus/malware scans. There are a number of things that can cause a computer to run slow. A crappy CPU, not enough RAM, HDD swapping files, viruses and malware.

  3. You don't have alot of RAM and a pretty small HDD. My guess is the computer is using the HDD for a swap file and that is slowing it down not to mention the Pentium 4 was slow, hot crap. You can upgrade and max out the RAM and see if that helps. I would also download Avast and Malwarebytes and do scans to see if comes up with anything. What versions of Windows do you have and do you know how to use command prompt?
