IE runs slow

OPR SYS:  Windows XP Home
512MB RAM, 2.80GhZ Processor

123GB space left on 0 Hard drive
Exteranl HD--120GB--Empty


I open I.E. and it goes to my designated home page, and it goes to others pages, but about every other page takes about 5-10 minutes to come up.  I check for Viruses and malware, etc.,  almost everyday, as I am on the Internet alot.

I run XOFTCOPY, Spybot Search and Destroy [almost everyday], have Norton Internet Security 2005.  Zone Alarm Pro and a hardware firewall.

Why is this IE Slowness happening?
