    A couple of things may be contributing;

    1 being the Windows swap file, if it hasn't been changed from the standard MicroSoft settings it will expand as it sees fit.

    Solution; take control of the swap file away from Windows.

    2 could be that you have the hibernation function enabled in the Power Options. If this feature is enabled Windows XP creates a hidden file named hiberfill.sys.
    This is the file where everything residing in memory is written to, when the computer is restarted (awakened) everything in hiberfill.sys is replaced in memory to create the effect of everything being as you left it. Therefore, the more you have running at any given time, the larger the hiberfil.sys will be.

    Solution; disable hibernation.

    Maybe not the definitive answer, but these 2 things just leapt to mind.
