Is Working Memory the same as RAM

I am trying to install An Epson Status Monitor but keep getting the error message "Setup can not allocate working memory. Close all applications, exit windows and try again". Being new to computing can anyone help me.

Try restarting windows and turn off any unnecessary programs.

And what is the operating system?

You can stop Programs that start when you switch the computer on, by going to the Run Box and type MSCONFIG in the startup folder things that start when you switch on have a tick in the box nearly all these can be switched of, and started as needed just by going to the program's list they all need memory and resources when they are running and sap the energy from you system

Leave the tickes in these to start with and remove the others, you can retick if you need them.

Leave Systemtray, Navapw32
