Hi moorie...not too sure what tasks to be exact...maybe i had a few webpages open, and i was using msn messenger as well...i've clicked the button and the warning has gone for now...

Do all the usual antivirus and spyware scans first, julius44, make sure there are no nasties on your computer.

By default, with 2GB of RAM, julius44'S Pagefile will be large as it is, Rdave13. I really think scanning for viruses and spyware should be the first port of call.

I agree. Maybe I should have posted " as well as scanning etc "click here" :)
