If you right click on the task bar, then task manager, you can see what process is using memory and how much.

Whatever you find, my suggestion is that you begin using Microsoft Security Essentials, it uses small amount of resources. In conjunction use Malwarebytes. You will have excellent protection with small resource usage.

If it is fine now, got to search, type event viewer, and look for errors around the time of the problem.
