Slow Toshiba Tecra M2 Series

Can someone help please? Need to speed up the laptop, currently taking 5-6mins to start up and 2-3mins between applications.

Pentium 1700MHz - 1.7GHz - 1.25GB RAM
Running WIndows XP 2002 (SP3) drive set to NTFS

Replaced one of the 256 RAM with 1.0GB. Not sure if this works, but OFFTEK Ltd checked what I had installed and recommended up to 2.0GB. If I need to take out second 256 - where is it?

Have run Crap Cleaner and SuperAntispyware

Believe one of the problems on start up is the number of programmes (33 listed) and need help in determining what is the minimum I need?

Johnny, I posted the help request on Friday with no response and thought that I had phrased the title / question incorrectly and posted a second question under "laptop slow at start up" and got al the help and answers I needed.

Regards
