I have MacBook 10.6.8 with 2GB memoory intel core 2 Duo processor. Recently I am facing this problem where I keep getting 'BEACHBALL' (that circular rainbow type thing) running pretty much everytime I use  programs even for that matter Word and Powerpoint. I have presentation soon (like in three weeks) and I plan to use my mac for that. Its kinda old machine (like two years or so) Want to know if there is a way to clear up some memory or like that which will help me getting better performance from this machine. I used omnidisksweeper to check if I have any files thats big and not in use so that I can just delete it. But I have got nothing more than 20MB. I must say I do have a **** lot of (about 46GB) folder with videos on my mac but its resting in Trash. Can a full Trash BAG creat a problem?? Help Needed....any help to solve this problem will be appreciated....!!!!

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
