Windows 7 Moving Slow - High Memory Usage

Specs: Windows 7
I have Windows 7 and my physical memory usage is at 2.13 GB without any programs running and just IE with the home page of Yahoo. I have 4G of memory installed however the computer seems to be running slow and maxing out resources.

Example, it takes a while to scroll on webpages. The letters of typed words don't show immediately. In Microsoft Excel, it takes a while for the pointer to change when clicking between cells or on cells. It just feels slow. IE crashes a lot also.

It seems this all occurred when I adjusted the display setting to the reccomended. Before they were on low resolution. I changed to 1680x1050. Certain programs look crisp and high resolution while others appear a slightly hazy/blurry.

I would recommend updating display driver also. If this does not help, try staying with the lower settings until you upgrade your video card (you probably are running onboard video).
Also make sure your computer in clean, run disk clean up and defrag.
Also make sure that your AntiVirus is updated and run.
