Try saving your image as a Jpeg or a gif. Depending on what you have installed, MS paint will give you these options. You might currently have the avatar as a bitmap, which is good quality but the file size is huge! If you go to aspect ratio in Paint, you could also just reduce the number to something below 100% and check the image info for pixel size as well.

Bitmaps are a pain and they are insanely huge... In PSP or Photoshop, you can always reduce the amount of colors in an image by optimizing it... It usually saves a lot on space.
