try cleaning the brake pads with some sandpaper or an emory board, then wipe then with rubbing alcohol. clean the rims really good with windex or similar cleaner and then rubbing alcohol. also check to be sure as Tensing suggest the pads are contacting the rim correctly. the front part of the pads should contact the rim just before the back part. this is refered to as 'toe in'.
