    today i reinstalled windows xp home sp2. when i went to install my mcafee security suite and anti virus program i received the following message: "your system does not have sufficient memory to run this application" i have reinstalled in the past due to slow performance and never saw this, however i had noticed that my system was running with nearly all of the memory in use (90%+) any help would be much appreciated.

    Seeing that you have a dell I'm not surprised. I don't know what changed (besides a possible pagefile size), but you should likely consider more ram as well as a different program that doesn't require as many resources as mcafee or norton, like avg or something.
