help in managing Windows' memory
Advertisements [?]
it's insane. I have to reboot every 5-6 hours because it
becomes slow and sometimes just 6-7% is left. 

It has 384 Ram (very good ram Rambus) and all I do is surf
(cut and paste) and maybe play a video or music. I do open
sometimes a dozen windows, but, even when I close them the
memory is not available /put back. I know windows is not
known for it, but is there a trick or program that helps?

I'm getting a brand new PC with 1 GB of Ram but that's coming
two weeks from now (the LCD monitor delayed it)...
