1. Free RAM is wasted RAM. You want the OS to use every byte for best speed.
2. 128M of RAM is about 1/2 for today's usual user.
3. Try STARTER which I mention at http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6132-0.html?forumID=32&threadID=1313&start=0 to see if you can find what is running at startup.
My computer always starts up so slowly, as I have a lot of programs that startup automatically in the system tray, is there anyway I can disable certain programs from automatically starting up in the system tray when the computer is turned on? I am running Windows ME on a 866Mhz system with 128MB ram.
p.s.- does anyone know any good programs that will free up RAM?
