Unhappy Hour Glass Takes Forever To Go Away

I have a Sony Vaio laptop with Windows ME, a Pentium III processor, and 20 gb free space. Sometimes when I open up a program, like Word or Adobe Reader, the hourglass takes 5-10 minutes to go away. I haven't had this problem in the past. This is what I've done so far to solve the problem:

Ran AVG Antivirus: It found no bugs.

Deleted junk files: That didn't work.

Defragmented hard drive: Didn't solve problem.

My laptop isn't fast to begin with because I don't have much RAM. But since this problem hasn't occured before I was wondering if you tech whizzes out there might be able to offer me some helpful advice. I'd really appreciate it.
