You only have 53 MB RAM available for processing and virtual disk cache. How much freedisk space? Since you have a relatively small hard disk you may not have enough space for virtual memory, which you will need since you have so little RAM. Try freeing as much spaces a possible on the hard drive and run the Windows defragmenter.

I don't think a clean install is absolutely neccessary. I haven't done a reformat and clean install in over 3 1/2 years. A clean install is the easy way out of the problem, since you don't really solve the problem. Buying a new PC is another easy way out, but neither solution is absolutly necessary if you track down the source of the problem.
