    Check this out.

    Many users are surprised to learn that wallpaper and screensavers consume memory. Graphics are the worst offenders. I have no wallpaper and have my screensaver set to none.

    Other than that, you might want to clear the Startup Menu of anything you don't use daily.

    Regular running of Disk Cleanup, Scandisk, and Defrag are also very helpful.

    Try these homemade remedies and see if they make a difference.
