Search the boards. There are some threads about free maintenance software.

Agreed, the RAM upgrade always helps.

In the meantime, the two popular matainence software packages around here are MainMenu and Onyx.

I prefer MainMenu, but download either of them and execute their corresponding maintenance scripts to clear your Mac up a bit.

Good luck!

One last push!
