I have cleaned out the computer best I can. Defrag, Scan Disk, Temp files etc.
I have 8.69 gigs, with 5.61 free and 316 RAM.
Not enough memory is the message I keep getting all of a sudden.
Has not happened in years, until today.
Any good suggestions out there? :confused:

Have you recently added RAM to this machine?
Is there a number with the error message?

I have not added new RAM. A couple of years ago I did.
But not lately.
However I have just added about a week ago, the program a Hot & Burn CD program.

That help at all?

This is most likely a System Resources issue.
After a fresh boot, from Explorer, do Help About.
If the Resource percentage is not in the mid-80's, there is an excellent chance that you have SpyWare installed, OR you have too many apps starting at boot time.
