Trouble running multiple applications

I want to know if there is anything I might be able to do to make it where I can run multiple programs at one time without there being serious lag. Say I try to run fraps, windows live movie maker, and a game. At first when I am not recording, the fps says it is at about 20 or so. That is a bit less than i usually get. Then if I start recording on fraps for the game and windows live for the webcam, the fps will go down to about 2 or 3. Is there anyways I can get it to not be so laggy? Would this program I saw called cloud help? I am on a Windows 7 Laptop with 3 gb. Does any of that have to do with it? If so what should I do to make it perform better?

All those programs running at the same time can
use alot of resources (RAM, Page File, Kernel memory etc.).

You can upgrade your hardware or try tweaking Windows
a little bit. Although Windows 7 is pretty well optimized
for performance, if you do a quick search you can find
a couple tips that may help.
But please, Be Careful.

Would this program I saw called cloud help?

As far as this goes, I'm not sure if you mean a
program called cloud or this.

You might have to run less apps, unless you upgrade your machine.
That is the only definite way to greatly improve performance.
