1. RAM: What kind of videocard do you have? A real card, or an internal one on the motherboard? If the latter (onboard videochip), it's well possible it is taking up the remaining 18MB of memory for videomemory.

2. Defragmenter: best read

3. If the setup file is an .exe file (executable), you doubleclick it and follow instructions.
If it is an .inf (information & setup file), you either rightclick it and choose Install, or you go into Device Manager, Sound - video & game controllers, find your joystick there, rightclick it, properties, update driver and point to this file.
