    Low memory doesn't usually mean you are out of disk space. To find out, double click My Computer, right click C: and click on properties. That will show how much disk space is left. Post that back here.
    What I'm more interested in is how much RAM you have. To find out, right click on My Computer, then click on properties. At the bottom of the list will show your RAM.
    How old is your computer? When does the low memory message appear (what are you doing at the time?).
    You can try the following and see if it stops the message:
    Click Start, then open the Control Panel.
    Click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.
    Click the Advanced tab.
    Under Performance, click Settings.
    Click the Advanced tab.
    Under Virtual memory, click Change.
    Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file (virtual memory) settings that you want to change. In almost every case, this will be your C: drive.
    Click to select the "System managed size" option, then click Set.
    Click OK three times and restart your computer.
