You might be runnning out of physical memory.  It might not even be the program you killed that's tying up memory, it could be another.

Instead of looking at the "applications" list in task manager, look at the "processes" list.  I tend to look at the "memory" column, the "CPU % useage" column, and the base priority column.  It might uncover a program running with a large % of your physical memory, high CPU (high idle % is fine), or an application that is running at a higher priority may be blocking other programs at a lower priority.

Hi,

Run a scandisk with surface scan to check for bad sectors.
