How much memory do you have? Right click on My Computer and select properties. Ram is memory usually listed as MB of ram or in some cases GB of ram, the more you have the better. 32 MB is considered to little now a days to be very productive.

I started out with and old 386 at work (many years ago) with 4 megs of ram and everytime after a few minutes on the internet the browser would freeze up solid using either Netscape or IE.

Eventually put 4 more megs of ram in it and this made a big difference as it was then reasonably stable. Still surfing was slow and it was quicker/best to browse with images turned off in the browser settings.
