Looks like you're running a backup using nero backup right now and it is using a fair chunk of your memory and probably a lot of disk access as well
run msconfig go to services hide microsoft services and disable the rest and also disable all startup items
reboot and compare your performance

next time you are in taskmanager  to performance and then click on resourse monitor check your disk queues that could be it.

check also if the disk is running in DMA mode - not PIO : http://winhlp.com/node/10
does it run slow in safe mode?
you can always run a disk diag for the disk brand you have, to know it's status (long test)

you can also disable programs at startup:
in the run box type msconfig
in the startup tab - clcick disable all; now reboot and test again

You are running out of RAM, You already have 4GB, can your BIOS cope with more?
