To allocate more memory to Internet Explorer (IE) do the following:
Open the Hard Drive and find the actual IE application. This is NOT the alias on your desk top. The icon is a Blue E. Once you have found the application, SINGLE click on it to select it. No double-clicking! Hold down the Apple Key (the one next to the keyboard) and press the "I" key. This will bring up an Info window for the application. It defaults to General Information but by clicking on the arrows at the end of that line, you can select Memory. You should then see three lines of numbers. Suggested Size, Minimum Size and Preferred Size. This last one is the one that concerns you. It is probably set to something a little above the Suggested size. Try setting it to something like 12000K and then close the window. Launch IE and go to the site that gives you the error message. If you get the error message again, quit and change the first 2 numbers to 14 and try again. Beware, you are allocating memory from a limited supply. If you only have a small amount of memory to begin with, you will not be able to allocate a large amount to IE. Check under the apple menu, About this computer, to see how much memory you have BUILT-IN. Subtract from that number, the amount that the system is using and what you have left is how much you can play with. Do not allocate ALL your available memory to IE, the system will crash.
Let us know how you get on
Hope this helps
MY OS is 9.1(iMac) I have repeated error messages poping up saying."Not enough memory to open the plugin' Shockwave Flash NP-PPC'. Alloting more memory to Internet Explorer may help. How do I do that? I'm a novice,so could you baby-step me through the process.
