    Has it always ran slow or just recently? If its Vista seems like 1gig of ram acts like 256mb did on XP so the more ram the better (up to 3gigs unless your running 64bit).

    1. Alt+ctr+delete and check the Task manager
    2. Check with eat all of the CPU and RAM usage
    3. delete/turn it off

    If you have more than 2 physical disc and 1 virtual turn off Kaspersky and install something different - i've noticed that when i mount anything Kaspersky sometimes went crazy for a couple of seconds [CPU usage at 95% level]

    If You're running vista, turn off the desktop enchancements, 1 GB of ram is too small for everything running around :).

    Oh, and check in bios whether You use Your memory properly [for example if your RAM 133 MHz runs as a RAM 133 MHz not 100 MHz]

    For better performance set the swap file to 2,5* amount of your RAM - in Your case it will be around 2048 / 3062 MB
