Also, please be careful when choosing colours for your text. Light green text on a blue background is very difficult to read.

To help you we need more information:
- Which version of Ubuntu are you using?
- What are your hardware specifications?
- What exactly is slow (disk access, browsing the net, 3D graphics, 2D graphics, ...)

Please give us as much info as you can.

You need to be more specific we can't read your mind.

run command

$free -m

that way we can see the memory usage.

mostly are terminal commands so all you need is to enter them into terminal at startup.

Listen I don't think anyone here can really help you based on the info you have provided. Sounds to me you need to take a linux tutorial and get an understanding on how it works. I would recommend you to look this google search over.

You need to learn the basics of linux on a few commands like first learn how to open a terminal. That way it easier for people to help you if you know the basics.

No, the amount of installed software shouldn't cause a problem with web browsing. Which browser? Does it happen all the time, or with specific sites (like those using Flash, for example)?
