Computer freezing

Okay, posted a few days ago my computer was freezing every once in awhile, not a total freeze out, just hesitating for a second or two every couple seconds for like a minute or two, then would be fine for awhile then do it again.

Did some research on my own and I used Performance Monitor to watch things and everytime it goes into this freezing cycle the pages/sec in memory skyrocket, stay up for small time, then come down, then back up again. When my computer is going well, this does not happen.

So, I did some research and eveything I find says one of two things:

1) Not enough RAM - I have 1GB of RAM so it can't be that

2) SQL Server - I am not running a SQL server

Further research says I can make this happen by looking at some emails in Outlook, then minimize and it happens everytime after I minimize. But even with Outlook closed it still happens

So, can anyoen help me find out what is causing this spike in pages/sec in memory?
