avatar too big

Hello everyone
I have been posting on a couple of subjects recently and now I want to use my own avatar.I have an image from a camera which is black and white,low res and has been cropped,all to reduce file/pixel size,limit of which I understand is 75x75 pixels or 20000k.
Still my avatar is too big(31.4k 196x235 pixels)Does anyone know a simple way to reduce this(I only have paint) as I am not good at this sort of image editing.
