You need to stop some programs from running on start up. First think to do is run your spyware removal software.

change the theme to window classics, and change the appearance to windows classics

click start, run, type msconfig, in startup uncheck all of the item you don't need to run in start

right click toolbar, select properties , start menu, customize, set the the number of programs on start menu to 0, click advance, uncheck "list my most recently open documents" and select clear list.

get rid of norton antivirus, it is a resource hog. use avg or avast

this should give you anywhere from 75 to 150mb of extra ram
