Well for one, with only 1896 MB of RAM is not much help.

What protect programs are running other than Defender?

smadav. It's a secondary antivirus program. That's the only one there. So would, a ram upgrade help ?

It may, but I think it is a waste of money to spend anything on this one.
I would apply the monies toward a newer more powerful machine.
