I keep getting a "low memory" while on the internet.  Never has happened before.  Any guidance?

You've offered a bit too little information to give but the most general of guidance.

 

When you get this, fire up Task Manager to see what your memory hog is and, if it's one of your web browsers, consider what it is that you're doing, exactly, in that browser at the moment.  Some suck up memory with far more gusto than others.  Having myriad tabs up, particularly if they're media intensive, can chew through memory.

 

It is almost certain to be something that you're doing that you didn't do before or that something on one of your long favored websites has changed that's now making it chew up memory.

 

I also suggest, if you keep lots of tabs open, closing one tab at a time then watching what happens as far as memory usage under Task Manager.  Eventually you'll narrow it down to the culprit or couple of culprits.

I apologize for being a little lack of information, but that was all I could give.  However, it only did it once this am and nothing for the rest of the day.  May have just been some sort of glitch in the system.  If I continue to have this problem, I will be contacting you.

This thread is about low memory, not slow internet. Maybe you posted to the wrong thread.
