Of course, but this will depend on how much RAM you have and how big the programs you are using are. Obviously bigger programs such as Video editing will take up more RAM to have it running. If you overdo it though and use most of your RAM up with many programs at once you will notice a slow down in your computer speed.

What does excessive disk thrashing indicate?

You don't have enough RAM.Thrashing is the Operating Systems way of allowing programs larger than can fit in RAM function. It does this by temporarily swapping portions of programs, or entire programs in and out of RAM.Since programs can only run from RAM, when an OS switches between programs, and there isn't enough RAM, it has to grab programs from memory and put them into ROM. And the program needing to run in ROM has to be loaded in RAM.Another solution is to have a RAM Disk (hard to find and expensive, currently DDR2 of 2012) or Solid State Hard Drive. Thrashing still occurs. But thrashing becomes fast enough that it is not very noticeable. It does cause wear on the Solid State Hard Drive.

Do you get all your ram back if you restart your Computer?

Your RAM does not go anywhere, but is only used by programs. As you close programs, the ram the programs was using becomes available again. If your computer is running slow, try cutting off or uninstalling unneeded programs. The more you have running at any given time the slower your computer will be. If the programs that use up all your ram are on your startup list go to < Start - All Programs - Startup > and remove the programs that you do not want starting with windows. They will still be on your computer so if your have no need of them at all, uninstall them to help increase speed.
