It may not be a memory issue, it may just manifest itself in that way (could be that a program forgot to let Windows know it released the memory after it had released it). I'd suggest leaving Task Manager open and then trying to cause this problem - that way it'll already be running when the problem occurs and you should be able to see it better. You'll be looking not just for total consumption - but odd looking (too high, too low, or too variable) figures in the different columns.
Try checking your Event Viewer for error messages around the time of the slowdown/freezes. Go to Start and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Check the Application and System logs for errors. If there's an Internet Explorer section check that also. Let us know what you find and we'll move on from there.
Also, just on a hunch, try checking Device Manager for any devices with red x's or yellow !'s. Go to Start and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
No more than two or three.
How many tabs are open in Internet Explorer?
