Every now and then when trying to save a Cad file I get the message
"Insufficient system resources exist" and the computer will not save
the file. When this occurs I can not either access our server, my
colleagues' computers however work properly so it is a local problem.
All this started a couple of weeks ago after having a lot of trouble
with malware. The malware problem was cured by installing various
anti-adware etc. programs. So now there still is this "system resources"
issue. Any ideas on what to do about it?

Thank You all,

Does this happen with all CAD files or just one particular file? Or only large files? It may be that the computer does not have enough RAM available to open the file. Or perhaps the hard drive is nearly full.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Since you cannot access the server, I presume that you're trying to save the file to the server - which makes the "insufficient resources" the inaccessibility of the server.

I suspect that the malware has corrupted your network settings in some manner - dunno the exact fix, but it sounds like you'll have to spend a bunch of time to fix this problem. Since it's a work computer - that may not be possible. So a backup followed by a format and reinstall of Windows would probably be the most time-effective way of fixing the problem (although it is the "sledgehammer approach")

If you'd like to spend the time troubleshooting it, I'd start with more anti-malware scans. Here's some free, online scans to start with:

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.
