Check how much Free disc space you have on C:\

Thanks My c\drive has 15.5Gb of space

Try going to Start/run and type msconfig, click ok and click on the startup progs tab and uncheck everything except explorer and systray (if they are there)reboot and see if there is any improvement. If there is then start checking the items in msconfig one at a time until you get the problem again You might also try a defrag but with the amount of free space you have I can't see it being that

You might also check that you haven't picked up a virus, Trojan or worm.

DO you mean system memory or virtual memory low?

The wording is " there is not enough memory to run this programme ,try closing some applications

I think you have to take Sil_ver's advise and check for viruses.

Please only open one thread on a subject.

Take a look at your other one, where I wrote a fairly comprehensive post. Then I suggest you close it, so as not to cause any more confusion.
