Which OS are you using ?

Why have you posed your question in 'text message' English rather that proper English?

Not everyone is able to translate!

Do you have virtual memory set-up correctly ?
(Not sure how you check on XP, but maybe somebody else does), also how much free space is there on your hard drive.

i sure you did not come here for a lecture on the English language dragonfury lol. don't worry about it.

as above though check your virtual memory settings are set to 'system managed size'

click:

'start/control panel/system/advanced/performance/settings/advanced/virtual memory/change'

tick the 'system managed size' radio tab and then click set and ok.

PS. you may want to consider purchasing some more ram as xp will work better with 256mb and better still with 512mb. 128mb is not enough really.

While running the 2 programs you could try closing any other running program(s) like firewalls/virus scanners/etc (if your PC has no use for them at the time) to recover some memory/system resources. I agree with huggyg71 suggestion that 128Mb RAM is not enough & to get some more. HTH, G

"try closing any other running program(s) like firewalls/virus scanners"

This is not good advice.

It should read, "try closing any other running program(s) EXCEPT firewalls/virus scanners"

Have to disagree with you on the advice. If the machine is not on-line to the internet firewalls/virus scanners are not performing any useful function.(ie PC has no use for them as Crossbow7 mentions)
