Programs freeze immediately after startup

Specs: Windows XP, 1GB
I just reinstalled the operating system on an older compaq PC and when I turn the computer on, try to open an application, it will freeze. Or, when I open the start bar, it will freeze and I can't click off to desktop, and it doesn't work. Also, avaast and comodo firewall are installed and mozilla firefox, that's about it. Any ideas?

How dusty is it inside?

Have you checked the CPU temperature (in the BIOS)?

How much RAM is installed?

What size is the CPU?

Are all drivers installed for the hardware in the machine?

Does it still freeze if you boot into Safe Mode?
