Hello wildchild1162,

You can try increasing your virtual memory... Right click My Computer select properties select advanced tab select settings button under performance select advanced tab on new window select the change button enter new values for the page file (traditionally 1.5 times more that your total RAM) Then Apply and OK to all dialogue boxes.
Regards,

Alan.

Good Morning Alan, it was set at 192 so I went up to 195, do you think this is enough or should I increase it more? It says there is a maximum size of 384mb available. Thank you so much for your help. :thumbsup:

Hi wildchild.

Hold the WinLogo key (between Ctrl and Alt) and press the Pause/Break key. In the bottom right you will see your installed RAM. Follow Alan's directions and set Min and Max boxes to 1 times that figure and you will have no more problem. (eg, for 256 MB enter 384, for 512MB enter 756, etc. The actual number you put in is not critical, any old thing around those figures will do the job).

Cheers

You should probably set it to 960MB for that particular system.

Alan.
