My main suggestion is open up your task manager and click the Processes tab. Sort it by Memory so that it is in descending order. (Big to Small) Look through all the processes and see if you recognize the names of any that shouldn't be there or are programs you know you close out. For example, seeing Picaboo.exe running after you've closed it out means there is a background process running. You are looking for suspicious processes that are using large amounts of memory.
If you find a process that is eating up memory on you, it may be worth opening up the command window (Start->Run) and running MSCONFIG. Type that in and click the "Startup" tab on top. The same process you identified before may be listed here in the startup. If so, it means you have a process running at startup that needs to no longer do so.
Sorry to be so wordy, it hurt me just as much to type it as it did for you to read it.
