very slow xp

I recently bought a machine from Nethighstreet and so far it has been excellent. However after it has been on for a while it slows almost to a halt especially in games but also in windows which becomes painfully slow to respond.I regularly run Systemsuite antivirus, have only about 20 GIGs on a 160 Gig drive and have 1 gig memory. I assume something is using up memory and not releasing it but cannot figure out what is happening. If any one could poiunt me in the right direction as to what to look for I would be grateful. This a summary produced by Dr hardware ( at least a part of it)
