How do you check your free System Resources? Just go to Control Panel>System>Performance. If you want to check it often, then just right-click on System icon, choose 'Create shortcut'. It will appear on your desktop, and you can drag it down to left end of your taskbar. Now it's available for quick use. Or...
Use System Resource Meter. Go to Start>Programs> Accessories>System Tools, and click on Resource Meter. The meter will pop up in your task bar (right side), and you can keep an eye on it. When it starts to turn red, then your resources are getting low. But remember, it also is using up some of your System Resources.
When you restart your computer, these resources will be returned to you. But, as you again use computer, your computer will again use up resources.
It really is a 'never-ending' story, and something we all have to live with. But, if you'll restart your computer every once in a while, you may find that it runs a little bit faster.
Worth a try.
