My computer is acting strange.I am getting several error messages, the one that really concerns me is this. The message reads, "Your request cannot be completed because the service could not be found or did not respond. The service might be experiecing technical difficulties or you may need to adjest your network settings." This was an internet connection error. But, I am confused... All I did was double click on my computer C drive and then sometimes when I try to click a folder, any folder, doesn't matter which folder I try to open I get this message.

My system resources seem to be running high also, even though I have not a lot of things running.

I am also getting an error that says memory is low, and I can't open anything else. I have my mail running, and a browser and that's it.

I know it is not a virus, malware, spyware, etc, because I was just over in the spywarewarrior forum getting a problem solved, my pc is clean.

My computer is slow also, something isn't right...

I am running XP SP3, I just installed it but nothing improved. I am also running Office 2007 SP2 now also.

Anyway have any ideas?

I would try replacing the CMOS battery.

Lots of crazy errors are usally symptoms of either a dying battery or RAM problems, IMO.

Hi Hamluis,

I leave my PC on 24/7. Would the battery still be an issue?

RAM problems? oh dear.. What is the name of that mem software we can download? memmaker or mem868 or something like that, I forget, it runs a series of tests of your RAM.

Thanks.

I have ran one pass with memtest86, no problems.. I will next try to replace the CMOS battery, though I would think there should be no problems with the battery as my system is always on...

Someone mentioned that I need to reformat... Gosh I hope not...
