Howdy,

I am posting in order to advise someone who is getting a pop up screen from Internet Explorer that says:

Out Of Memory Line 68 when goes to a particular web site. He has being going to the same site every day for years. This pop up just started yesterday. It only happens on that site.

Any ideas on what could be going on.


Thanks for your time.

Dennis :thumbsup:

I see some evidence suggesting that it's caused by Adobe Flash Player, which could be corrupt or outdated.

I would go to the Adobe website and install the latest version of FP, http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Let us know if that resolves it.

Thanks for the replies !

I passed them on to my friend.

In the mean time someone had suggested that he dump Explorer and use FireFox as his browser.


Even though he may switch browsers with success, do you advise that he follow the above instructions ?

I am thinking he should address the leaking memory problem regardless of which browser he uses. Right ?



Thanks Again,

Dennis

What...exactly...are "leaking memory problems" as defined by whomever diagnosed such?

Wiki says: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_leak

Personally, I haven't considered "memory leaks" to be an issue since Win 95/98 days, when RAM installed on systems was miniscule in comparison to today and various measures were employed to get all that one could out of what was installed.

My approach has always been...if Program A causes problems in my system...I either remove it or update it to attempt to fix it. If a fix cannot be obtained, it's off my systems.

If "memory leaks" cannot be pinpointed to a specific program...I guess that I have to wonder...are such "memory leaks" or something else?

Just wanted to report back.

He updated Adobe and Java. The problem went away.

So one of the two (maybe both) fixes did the trick.

Thanks Again for the help !

I recommended that he join this site.
