    From the 512mb you have, that is plenty free. Don't forget you have virtual memory as well.
    Bitdefender is not considered bloatware (but it is also not considered to be all that good either).
    Maybe you should get CrapCleaner from http://www.ccleaner.com/ to rid you of junk.
    Then do a full chkdsk /f and a defrag.

    There are plenty of "What is the best AV..." style posts on this forum. Read those.
