Hello Orange Blossom!
Thank you for responding to my topic post! To answer your question I have 512MB of SDRAM on this system which is powered with a Pentium III running @ 750MHz. I have my Page File set for 1280MB on the C drive which is 20GB and currently is approximately one-fourth Used Space and three-fourths Free Space. I also have a D Drive which is 60GB and is occupied at just about the same ratio of one-fourth used space...three-fourths free.
You know, you are the first person to reply to this post and interestingly IE7 has not "frozen", "locked up" OR gone to "not responding" all week. In fact, I cannot even remember the last time that it happened. Everything seeems to be running quite smoothly now and I am happy that it is BUT I am NOT happy that I cannot explain how or why it is now behaving just as it should.
I have always been quite diligent about continually "cleaning up" after IE and my hard drives and also keeping them from being more than even SLIGHTLY fragmented. I HAVE become even MORE diligent about these things of late and I have even removed some programs from my system that I wasn't totally confident in as to their usefullness or tustworthiness. Since I "put up" this topic I have also run some good old fashioned spyware/adware/malware finder/cleaners and reinstalled all my browser "helpers" such as Java Flash and Shcockwave.
Beyond all of these things I cannot explain what WAS happening....why...OR why it no longer has been happening.
SOooo, I think I am OK....but THANK YOU FOR CHECKING ME OUT...I appreciate it....MUCH!
And....DON't YOU WORRY....if it starts happening again I WILL definitely be back!!!
Thanks again and Happy February Computing to you, my friend!
