For some reason my system resources are very low. I've have done " Ctrl, Alt & Delete" and closed out applications. I've done the "MS Config" start up. But, it still has low resources. I've emptied out the temporary files, and history files. Is there any way i can add more system resources to run my application smoothly? Do you have virus protection? Some viruses give this message.

There are many things that can give an error message, "memory full" or something similar.

Visit the web site: and do a search on "memory full" or similar terms and see what discussion groups find out about such messages. Look for messages that have been asked a lot of times. These are given on the list of responses you see on that site.
