Windows 7: Sluggish and slow?

Sluggish and slow?

There seems to be a delay with the taskbar at the bottom. Sometimes when I open Firefox or another program the icon won't appear in the taskbar until much later.

This is especially noticeable when starting up the computer. Nothing appears in the taskbar until like 10 minutes after it's booted up.

Run for 8 passes
If passes try a good stick in each slot for 3 passes

Check for errors in event viewer
Bring up task manager, how much memory is used? How much available and free?
