check your virtual memory settings.

control panel/system/advanced/performance/settings/advanced/virtual memory/change

tick system managed size,set and ok
xp should be ok with a gig of ram but older versions may not like any more than 512.if you have two sticks of 512,remove one and see what happens.

If you've not been booting/rebooting for a while, then tnat could be your problem. RAM is volatile, ie. when you shutdown and cut power to it all stored information is lost, if you continue to keep it powered for long periods of time, some files will get "stuck" and not get deleted until you shutdown.
