    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.
