The simplest thing is just to check your start ups and diesable those you don't need.

To free up memory:
Shut off software you don't need running. This never includes your firewall and AV protection, and most MS system processes. If you use Norton, look for an alternative. If you want to know what's running right now, right click in the taskbar and bring up the Task Manager and click "processes". The next tab over will tell you how your memory is being used. Adding more memory is one of the quickest cheapest ways to improve computer performance, but not worth much if you don't shut down things that aren't needed.

You should also try to repair any glitches in your registry. I sugest CCleaner. You can download it from: http://www.ccleaner.com ...
