please can you help me. I can't use my msn messenger. Every time i download something i can't open it because of the error message. I'm sure i have enough space on my computer. All this error message started when i tried to open winzip setup. Thank you.

Go Start then Run and type in


choose the Startup Tab and using the list click here untick any Not Required. When finished restart the pc.

thanks for replying. msconfig on it's own don't work. It has to be msconfig.exe or something. So can you please tell me what to type in exactly in the run. Thanks

Go Start then Run then Accessories then System Tools then System Information you will find it in the TOOLS menu

I had a similar problem until I discovered that Vitual Memory had been disabled. If it is, set it to the Windows default setting and you should not get any more 'out of memory' messages.

it is set to default. I don't really understand what you mean Andy SD. I clicked on system info then tools and system cofiguration and then i don't know what to do.

Another thing you can do is install a memory manager. I found Cacheman was good for Win 98.
