You could try some of the following:
  • Defrag the hard drive
  • Look through your stuff, and delete stuff you don't need to free space
  • Get more RAM
  • Reinstall the dodgy programs
  • Possibly reinstall your OS
  • Or...* PREPARE YOURSELF FOR IMMINENT HARD DRIVE FAILURE *

Be wary of the last one. It could be that your hard drive needs to go into retirement, and this would be symptematic of this, but I hope I'm wrong. Try the other options first.
