What is memory upgrade?

Question

I've run scandisk, defragged, set manual virtual memory, run Regclean, cleaned up my start-up folder, everything I've read in the FAQ's to help my laptop run faster, better. Started out with 62-64% resources available, now I've gotten it up to 72-74%. Thanks for to the great suggestions in the FAQ's. Still have one problem. When opening, and sometimes closing large programs, The screen will freeze. The mouse doesn't work, the "computer is working" icon freezes, everything freezes for up to 10 secs. Then everything is fine. It's almost like all the resources are being used and the computer is waiting for some to become available. I've checked, right after the "freeze" and it shows as low as 39% resources. I've run a program that monitors physical memory available (not a great program since it uses alot of resources itself), and it shows low physical memory available during the times when it freezes up. Any suggestions?
