The first thing I would, as it is quick and easy, is test a few bits of your hardware, you could have a memory chip going bad or a bad sector on the harddrive causing seek time problems.
Download and burn to a CD the UBCD (ultimate boot CD), this utility has a bunch of tools on it to test your hardware.
Harddrive tests are very quick, memory tests can take a while, if you see anything you are unsure of don't hesitate to ask me.

Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

My computer, Windows XP, freezes when I use Firefox


Your system loaded with Windows Xp Operating System might get affected by various viruses and malware. The antivirus softwares installed in your system for the removal and prevention of viruses from your system cause the freezing issue. This antivirus softwares might take too many time to load and it also make the entire system slow to boot. The antivirus programs result in the freezing of the Windows Xp during start up. Thus you need to temporary uninstall the antivirus software during the start up of your system.
