Why the fear?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / June 16, 2010 8:32 PM PDT

I can guess it's because you have no backup of "what you can't lose."

-->> Try this. Get your files that you can't lose on CD/DVD/Internet/USBstick and make 2 spare copies.

Now with all your files safe and sound you can delete the tmp files and try disk cleanup.

Try Unloading your virus scanner software

In reply to: How much ram do i have

I found that my virus scanning software in windows 7 was taking up a huge amount of ram. I ended up turning off some of the more robust real time scanning features and the unloaded it completely in order to eliminate that low memory message. Once I isolated the problem, I talked to the vendor to figure out why my switch settings were causing this problem. Turned out, and I use f-secure, that the settings were doing real time scanning on every file, whether internet or not. On that particular computer, I only had 1mb of ram and it used it all up. The new box that I just bought has 4mb of ram and no problem. On the old box, I had to turn off some of the real time monitoring to address until I could add some more memory. Maybe this will help

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
