    I've just purchased a laptop with Vista as the operating system. The computer has 1GB of RAM. I installed Word 2003. It opens fine, but when I try to change the Office Assistant (Paper clip guy, Puppy, Cat, etc.) I get the message "There is not enough memory to perform this task." Is 1GB of RAM not enough to run Vista and use Word's extras? Is 1GB of RAM enough?

    I get the same problem, also on Vista with 1Gb RAM. When I right click on the paperclip and choose "Choose Assistant" nothing happens so I have to double click and choose options. Then when I go to gallery I get the not enough memory message with that really annoying broken sound that Vista makes. And that just makes the whole thing even worse.

    [EDIT]: But, like, 1Gb of RAM is very much enough.
