Operating System Version: Windows XP
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:

I have 256 MB Ram and 28 processes running, 3 of them are on the taskbar and they are Zone Alarm, Mcafee and FreeMem. Right now I have two Browser windows open and two notepads and my memory is down to 48.71 MB

Is this normal? or is there some programme in the background taking it all?

Hi again Phil, It's not too bad
I do see your running a free program to free up memory
May of been recommended in the Windows 98 days but I don't think it's required in XP
I look at it as a program that uses resources to free resources

I also see you only have 256 ram, I suggest as being minimal for XP
You could upgrade to 512

28 processes isn't that bad, you could check out Black Vipers to see what you can disable, watch what he mentions, he doesn't like to use system Restore---I say keep it enabled
Look under the Safe setting---Keep note of what you change
I usually print out the services and put a check to what I've disabled or reset

Edit---Forgot the link to blackvipers
