i got 512 mb. that's all it can take unfortunately.RAM-PAGE said:Better to put more RAM in the computer.
i do not see it in any of the listings of any utilities i run that shows the startup list...only in the msconfig startup list. that's what i dont understand.RAM-PAGE said:If you really want to know what makes a difference to performance I would trial Diskeeper 9 Professional (not Home) (30 day) and, if you are running on NTFS, make sure that the Master File Tables are the right size with Frag-Shield. I had to pad out (make bigger) the MFTs on all four drives and then reset the MFT on drive C: manually. It was 99% full and causing fragmentation and poor performance.
DK9 Pro will defrag the drive in the background and with 512Mb of RAM this shouldn't be a problem.
Then you can do a boottime defrag running checkdisk at the same time, and defrag the paging file and MFTs. As long as you have 4096 bytes per allocation unit (4k clusters) you should see a dramatic increase in performance and reliability.
See the NTFS Performance link below.
It is probably a stuck entry in msconfig. Can you see it in the SpyBot start-up list?
Have you tried RegCleaner 4·3?
