Computer had malware. Gringo_PR from BC helped to get rid of everything. Now after 2 months am getting error message: Insuffcient system resources exist to complete the requested service.

Computer is up to date w/ everything that Gringo suggested. Could it be too many antivirus, etc... slowing it down on start up? Please advise.

Thanks.

Have you tried the above?

IMO...those insufficient resources messages can be an awful lot of factors. I found an old BC thread about such...you will note all the different ideas that popped up, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic49537.html.

You could have more RAM...but that system would be pressed for resources only if you are running heavy-duty programs like Office, Adobe, etc.

I would look at two things initially, after checking the Dell link above.

a. Check that XP is managing virtual memory.

b. Take a look at programs installed and uninstall anything that you don' t really need. As a corollary of that, I would take a look at the items running at startup and eliminate anything but the most basic.

I believe the programs installed and running...offer the greatest chance of resolving this particular error.

Thanks Louis for the reply.

Can you tell me how to look that XP is managing virtual memory?

THanks
