Slow internet happens for various reasons..when it was slow?
is it while surfing the internet?
when running programs? either way, you can make it go faster. If your internet is slow, you should scan your computer for viruses and spyware using suitable programs.
If you still experience the same problem I would advise you to delete the computer after backing it up, and then installing a new copy of Windows. if your problem is with programs running slowly- I can advise you to download this software, which can extremely help- CCleaner ... check out the following and perform the speed test here It will be faster than before..

Extremely slow


First run Disc Cleanup and remove all it finds. Then purchase and Add more Ram. You Dell can use up to 4GB or Ram. Click the link and let them scan your computer with a safe download. They will tell you what you now have and the price of upgrading. Buy the most you can afford. Best money you will ever spend. http://www.crucial.com/store/drammemory.aspx
