Can any one tell me what does eat your memory up? I know something like pop-up stopper, msn messenger,or ank kind of running programs will. But we have accounted for those and they do not amount to much. Is there anything else they we may not be aware of that will eat it up. The reason, He was going to run a game and it said we didn't have enough memory to run it. We have close to two hundred.

Thanks

HI 12volt

First of all go to the control panel-add\remove programs and uninstall :-

newdotnet

then

Save (also known as WhenuSave and SaveNow)

and

CommonName

rebooting after each uninstall

Then

Please Download and install SpyBot,

http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/

click the online tab to search for and download the updates, then shut down and relaunch SpyBot.

Go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, click 'Check for problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds 'Fix selected problems'

you may have to run spybot more than once to clear everything

Remove everything pre-ticked in Red

Do not use Ad-aware 5.83 as it could damage your computer

Steam,
Did all of that to the best of my ability. It hasn't freed up any memory yet. When he gets home we will go through the regestry and get anything else out pertaining to the things you mentioned.

THANKS, 12VOLT

If you downloaded spybot updates and ran as instructed the regitry should be pretty clean now

please do this now - it will show anything that might have been missed

Download hijackthis

http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads.php#det

Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

save the log file and paste it here

did it. But I can't copy and paste it. When I right click, it just highlights the title I am on.

I take it you have the hijackthis list in front of you and the top line is highlighted - yes ?

look at the "scan" button - it will now say "save log"

click "save log" and save anywhere you want - it will save as a notepad .txt file

click edit - select all

Then right click and copy - then paste it here

1. When you clicked "save log" the normal save box should have come up and asked where you want to save the file - ok

2. The file should say "hijackthis.log" and you save it anywhere - ok

3. The file you saved - does it have a notepad icon on it ?

Please don't think I am treating you as a child - but I don't know what your experience level is - and I want to understand the problem
