Windows will use all the RAM it needs, unless you instruct it otherwise. There is a setting in msconfig to limit the amount of RAM, so just make sure that is not set.

For future reference, keep in mind that 32-BIT OS's only use ~3-3.5 GB.

Enabling PAE when it is already on does nothing. On new processors that have hardware DEP, PAE is on.
