    Disk defragmentation will help with load speed, but will not have any effect on running out of memory issue. What would help would be to reduce the number of installed fonts, and to reduce the number of loaded taskbar apps as all of these STAY RESIDENT in MEMORY...

    256 Megabytes of RAM is also considered the MINIMUM that Windows XP needs to operate, but for stable operation, you really need at least 512MB of system RAM. For CAD/CAM and Graphic work, you should have at least 1GB of system memory...

    I would listen to Len on this one.

    Have you recently installed any new programs? If it was writen by a company that you haven't ever really heard of there is a good chance it was just writen bad and isn't freeing up memory after it uses it.

    However, if you haven't installed anything like that then just try closing some programs you dont need. Its a lot cheaper than going out and buying hardware.

    , theres not much you could do to fix the problem, apart from upgrading your ram, but if not that just delete/ remove aps that you know are no real relivants.

    well ... the disk defragmenter is a computer program designed to increase access speed (and sometimes increase the amount of usable space) by rearranging files stored on a disk to occupy contiguous storage locations

    To call up the built in defragmentation tool, open up My Computer, right click on the drive and call up properties, then click on the 'tools' tab...

    You could always switch to linux.

    In all seriousness though, Len is right. You really need to upgrade your ram to 512 megs of ram. Are you also running anitvirus/spyware software reguarly? If it is adware/spyware that is causing this problem then you will want to try to remove it from your system.
