You might be referring to free resources. Optimizing Windows at http://www.aumha.org/articles.htm may help you increase it, but I've yet to see raising this from 69 to 79 do anything for performance.

I used to have the same problem until running a spyware system called: SpyBot. I did a system check and found a load of spyware and deleted them. Don't know if you have a spyware detection program. Try searching Spybot: Search and Destroy. Laura
