System Severely Bogged Down

I'm not sure where to post this really because I don't think it is a virus but maybe a registry error or something like that.

On my ACER Netbook (Windows XP) if I either play music or watch videos for an extended period of time or too often my system begins to act like all of my RAM is being used. The audio and video lag so severely that sometimes my system just freezes up altogether. And when I restart it it takes sometimes up to 45 minutes to boot to the login screen.

It has happened several times in the past and the only way I have been able to fix it is by rolling back my system using system restore. It got to the point where now I don't play mp3s on it at all because if I do for what seems like maybe 15 minutes it starts lagging and what not.

I have never heard of this happening to anyone else that I know and has never happened to me on any other computer I've owned. I am at a loss. Anyone have any ideas?

Oh and I ran OTS after it started so maybe it found something. I'll attach it.
