    Using Win 98 with a 500 MHz Pentium III. I recently added 128MB RAM to my original 128 -- I now have 256. Oddly, it seems I cannot open any more applications than before. The same applications being open will bring up the "90% of your resources are in use" message.

    I really thought I'd have it made with all this RAM. This is wierd. Can anyone suggest why this may be happening?

    Thanks for all help --
