Nothing busted here. To limit XP's memory to 1GB there is a limit memory in MSCONFIG but that's just as bad as installing only 1GB!
Hello, I just added another stick of RAM boosting my total to 4 GB. However my available memory is only 756MB! I had allocated 2 GB to Photoshop before this upgrade and it was working fine but now I am at 756 MB. How do I limit XP 's memory usage to about 1 GB?
