He has Office 2007 installed and is connecting to exchange 2003.  His Anti-Virus software is Kaspersky, and it's administered from our SBS2003 environment. These are the MAIN things he uses daily.

He says he is experiencing almost complete halts on his machine at times.  

He can't pinpoint a program that is running when he is experiencing this, but often complaints are E-mails taking too long to open, Excel freezing, and web pages taking a long time to load.  My question is, do the specs above support what he is running program wise.  What are some tests I can do?
