These desktop stay on all the time 24/7.


How long since Windows was restarted? When systems run 24/7 even a minor memory leak can eventually cause a problem.

I just restarted each desktop this morning. No error messages on either. It was about 3 weeks since they were powered down.

I'd suggest keeping an eye on memory usage, and if low memory issues develop again after a period, see what is taking up excessive memory. Have you made a change or changes around the time of the last restart that would involve updating drivers or setting up any new device?

No, I have not made any changes. The only things that changes are updates to Windows 7, Adobe, Malware-bytes.

- Install PcWinTech's Cleanmem. It reduces memory usage every 10 minutes.

Can you take a screenshot of the message? Please do this:

  • Click Start, enter cmd.exe in the Search box, right-click on cmd.exe, and then click Run as administrator.
  • Type the following command and hit ENTER:
msinfo32 /nfo "%userprofile%\desktop\MSInfo32.nfo"
  • Zip and attach MSInfo32.nfo which is found on your Desktop in your next reply.

If I do not reply in three days, please message me.
