Are you sure that is all your running?
Check here in your registry (Regedit) for a list of startup programs:
A lot of things can be in here...clean out what you know you don't need and restart...see how it looks from there.
You can also try what the other posted said with changing your swap file size.

IMHO 1.2Ghz and 512MB, what the hell are you running 98se for? I'd boost that machine upto Windows 2000 or XP. There is no point running a crap OS like 9x on a machine like that.
Agree!!! You'll be much happier with Windows 2000
