I have a similar problem as well. I'm running Windows XP and sometimes I get the memory issue, sometimes I get other things. I know there are way too many programs running in my start-up but I never know which ones to keep and which ones to stop.
Alan, I also have the same problem, and dont know what to do. I keep getting message's that my memory is low also. I was also wondering if it had anything to do with my Windows Updaye's. I have went through my file's no longer needed and got rid of them. Question #2.) I also have too many programs running on my start-up. I have tried the start>Run>MSconfig> and have unchecked some of the programs, but my comuter should still be running faster then Dial-Up because I have DSL. Someone Please Help.
