Our memory is getting very low. And we are not sure how to fix this problem. Also a window pops up and tells us the computer has preformed an illegall operation and will be shut down.

Your memory is getting low, as in you have little available.
Or,
you are getting "Out of Memory" errors?

If the former, that is exactly what you want, since free memory is wasted memory.
If the latter, it is most likely a System Resource issue with too many programs loading at run time.
(or you are running with more than 512MBs)

Download and run Startuplist and post back the contents of the file that it creates

In regard to your error message, post back the exact wording of the error, AND it there is a details button, click on it and post the contents of it.

Ok, I have downloaded the start up list program. And ran it. What exactly do I do from here. I don't quite understand your instructions on the illegal operation answer.

Thanks,12volt

Hi- You need to open the StartupLog file, and copy and paste the whole thing into an open reply to this thread....just get online, open a blank Reply box, get the Startup list open, highlight all or Edit>Select All, Edit>Copy and then click in the blank reply box, then go back to Edit>Paste, which will put the contents of the Startup List in the Reply, and submit your reply.

Byteman has admirably covered getting the Startup list back here.

Re the error.
Next time you get one, note it word for word and post that back here. AND, if the error message contains a "Details" button, click on the button (which opens another window), and note what it says, word for word. (ie: something like "program.exe has caused an invalid page fault @ 0024:154C78FB) and ignore all the stuff that comes after this line.
