So what can I do to free up some of this memory being used (What processes
or services can I shut down)?

On this specific question: don't try.

To the OP: disregard that instruction, because it's wrong.

Vista, unlike it's predecessors,
makes much more use of any available RAM by preloading all sorts of stuff
into memory, including applications which it "expects" you to use (based on
your previous useage patterns - Superfetch).

If the user disables the loading/starting of unneeded services and
programs then there will be just that much MORE RAM available for
system use.

Thus: it's worth trying.
