It is often recommended to have PF = 1.5x-2xRAM, so it growing to 1GB isn't that bad. I'm starting to run out of ideas - either your problem is very specific (e.g. related to a single piece of software), or System Properties will not show you 512MB (for some reason only a part of that is visible to Windows), or there's a hardware issue and PF size has nothing to do with it.

"Stuttering" after quitting a video game should be expected with 0.5GB RAM - for a limited time after quitting, that is (Windows is reading back to RAM data it put into the swapfile to run your game from RAM). How much does your browser consume when this happens? Right now my uses 0.6GB RES (1.6GB VIRT), with way too many tabs open.

On the 1st boot, how much memory is reported as used by task manager? An extreme minimum for XP is somewhere between 75..90MB, while "clean" XP (with no software installed) should use <120 MB after logging in. I would find values above 200MB abnormal - unless, of course, you have many startup applications.

comment Is there a way to make nautilus display the “recently used” files and directories?
Sorry, didn't notice the 'gnome3' tag - I'm on Debian/Gnome 2.30.2. In 3.2, those items might be called "History" or something like that (I don't currently have access to any Gnome 3.2 machines). Quick DDGoing hints that "Places" might now be an extension to Gnome3.

comment Gradual Disk Errors
Taking into account 'couple weeks of uptime', I guess some I/O or filter driver might be failing and getting unloaded; maybe the DMA HDD access is reverted to one of the PIO modes - which could explain the very slow shutdown. I'm not sure Windows-7 was initially designed for 'couple weeks of uptime'.
