    I just upgraded my memory from 96MB to 256MB. I expected to see a big change in performance, but with everything closed out, I am still running at 81%. I'm running WIN98 with a PII 350. Am I missing something here?

    Actually 81% is quite good if you've been running for awhile. Not so good for a fresh boot. But if you follow through succesfully with the instructions in the AV forum, you may see some improvement.

    By the way, installed memory and "system resources" are two different things. The latter refers to specially allocated regions of memory that are used for specific purposes -- graphics and user interface code.
