Quite frankly, I believe that the majority of your problems are related to the 128 mB of RAM. If you can afford it, upgrade immediately! I recommend 512 mB to keep the system running well - although you can function OK with only 256 mB.
The next most common reason for this is viruses and spyware. I'd suggest a complete system scan with an updated antivirus and antispyware program. If you don't have one, you can do a free, online scan here (requires Internet Explorer): http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
There can (and usually are) other issues that will slow down your system. Removing some of the startup programs - and disabling some of the unneeded services that are running can help.
You can also optimize your system for "best performance" by going to Start...Control Panel...System...Advanced tab...Performance Settings button - and then clicking on "Adjust for best performance".
All of this is dependent on what's running on your PC. To see most of the stuff that's running - press Ctrl-Alt-Del (all at the same time) and then click on the Processes tab. Then check the box in the lower left that says "Show processes for all users". This will show you what's currently running on your system (FYI - the one's named svchost.exe have multiple things running under them).
I've done all of this for several people with 128 mB of RAM and it's helped them - but without additional RAM your system will still be hampered by the lack.
