windows opening very late

Specs: Windows XP, Pentium 4 / 256 MB
for the last few days, whenever i start firefox.exe by double-clicking its shortcut in start menu, the process 'firefox.exe' gets listed in the task manager but the maximized window of firefox takes 4 or 5 minutes to open. why does such a thing happen and what should be done to rectify the problem? this was not happening earlier. earlier, the maximized window was opening after 30 to 40 seconds.

You have 256 MB of RAM ???
Add another 512 MB. XP alone uses 128 +.

Computer Speed and Performance May Decrease

When you open, then close programs,
programs may not free up RAM memory.
That is called "Memory Leak".
Restarting computer will clear out its RAM memory.
OR
install more RAM memory.

Also do your scans for Malware.
Most Virus and Spyware scans are likely to work better in Windows Safe-Mode.
