Okay, I'm really confused now. After I leave my PC unattended for about 8-10 hours while I am at work, I get home and when I try to do something immediately get an Out Of Memory error.

I have looked at several suggestions, most of which refer to modifying the boot.ini file. Guess what? I don't have one! And yes, I have looked in hidden and system files...no boot.ini to be found. When I do a search for boot.ini, my computer finds a backup of boot.ini in C:\Windows\pss.

What's up with this?

Thanks

As a test go to a cmd prompt [run -type cmd and hit enter]
type cd\ this should put you at the root of c:

type attrib boot.ini and hit enter

What is listed?

It says it's not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program, or batch file.
