O/S = Operating system.

Windows 98, ME, XP?

As you use Win98, have a look at click here and click here - possibly the ultimate speed tweak for win98.

After that, ensure that there is nothing unnecessary running in the background, no windows themes loaded on the desktop, and memory is properly utilised.

Start > Run > Type: MSCONFIG

Click ok and click startup, now remove the ticks, this will stop Windows loading programs when windows starts...

To see what you are stopping from starting compare what you have with click here

Also Run disk defragmentr and scandisk

Uninstall non needed programs from add/remove in the control panel.

Turn of the screen saver (if its on)

Start > Run > Type: %temp% and Click ok. Send all of the files to the recycle bin but leave them their any problems restore them.

A little drastic but a complete reinstall of the operating system can make the computer good as new.
