Hello,

I have a laptop that runs XP home. When I go into task manager in the bottom right where 'commit charge' is displayed it has xxxk/49! . Now the xxxk is always changing but the 49!(exclamation point) stays the same. This laptop will freeze up if I attempt to do windows update or run a couple of other pgms. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Bill, Tx

 

I forgot to mention that I have already downloaded and run Malewarebytes and it found nothing.

Can you post a screen shot of the performance?

 

How much RAM do you have installed?

 

How large is your hdd, and how much free space do you have.

 

There are three figures for the commit charge, the total, limit, and peak.  What are the two figures you have posted.

I checked into recommended memory settings for that laptop and found that 4096 was recommended and this one was at something like 2048. So, I changed it and now all looks normal. Thanks for your response.. Appreciate your time. Great forum, I've been reading other issues. Maybe someday I could actually help out.

Thx,

Bill
