I have a netbook running Windows 7 Starter edition 32 bits, CPU Intel Atom N270 1.60 GHz, RAM 1 GB, HD 150 GB (it's a HP Mini 110).

How can make it run a little faster?

I don't know how the Windows 7 Starter edition works, I think there are some restriction on how much you can tweak it but you can try delaying some of the services at startup or disabling the search service (indexing).

Other than that, use light applications and if you can add another GB of ram.
