I have recently been getting a message that my memory is dangerously low and that I need to delete some files to create space to even run disk defragmentor. I have just recently had this problem and am wondering if the Microsoft update of SP3 has anything to do with this. Also am wondering how I can see what files are taking up all my memory.

If you go to My Computer and right click on your C drive, then Properties the size and the amount of free space can be seen there. Please post what you have shown there.

If you have a CD/RW or a DVD/RW you can store files on them, this would help free up space.

That service pack is a beta version that has hotfixes that M$ hasn't tested, by downloading it and using it you effectively are debugging their product for them.

Microsoft confirmed that the new pre-beta XP SP3 build is real.

The excerpt below is from the Softpedia web site.

http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-Enh...3-Preview.shtml


Although all of these hotfixes are directly from Microsoft, some have not been tested and may cause system instability. Use at your own risk! Visit our forums to find out which hotfixes have been causing problems. We do NOT recommend using a bulk installer to install all of these at once. It may cause system instability. Although it may be time consuming, a one-by-one restart approach is best.

In order to remove files, you'll need enough space for Windows to move them around on your hard drive. In the case of an extremely full hard drive, you've got to start with the smallest files first and work your way up from there.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
