I had a virus that caused pop ups of fake anti virus programs, I took care of this by running many anti virus. maleware and registry programs. I thought the ram issue was connected to this problem but it was not.
My ram when I first start the computer runs low but as I use applications it bottoms out. I have 1.5gigs of ram one 1gig stick and one 500mb stick. With nothing running my pc's ram hovers around 650 to 700mb.
Hoping some one can help.
need any more info. let me know.

Where are you observing the RAM figure quoted?

Win9x/ME doesn't function well with more than 512MB of RAM, has the System Configuration utility been used to limit the amount of memory Windows uses?

I am looking a my tune up memory optimizer it shows how much memory is free and used at the bottom of the screen. I also checked the windows task manager to verify at least 400mbs are used even when the system is idol.
Thanks for the reply.

Try this Memory_Checker.zip that I've made. There's a complete explanation on Post #28. :thumbsup:
