I have read some posts on memory and resources. I have toggled off some startups to increase my resources. I still am not sure what memory I have and what it is being used for. My computer is only 5 months old and when I first started using it I did not have any problems running more than 4 or 5 tasks, now I can barely run my browser, and Outlook at the same time. I have 64MB of RAM, I use roughly 10% at start up, It drops to 70% when I start my browser, and then down hill from there. Also When I go to sys. info . It states that I have 62.51 MB total physical memory, but I only have 284. kb available? How is so much memory whether it is RAM or physical being used up? And what is the difference? Thanks, Computer illiterate in Illinois.
