in your system to begin with.
You have a decent PC.. but not nearly enough physical RAM to make is run efficiently like it could or should. It's like having a race car with an eight cylinder engine with spark plug wires running to four of the eight cylinders
Your system would run much much much better if you purchased and installed one of these kits with 2 DIMMs at 512MBs (1GB total $46) or 2DIMMs at 1GB (2GB total-$72).
While attempting to run a free dowloed of Adaware, I was told I didn't have enough Physical Memory to support it (256 MB). How do I find out how much memory I have, and is there a way to free up memory?
