Thanks Tom. I will try again (tho I would suggest offering newbies some hint on the proper procedure for responding).
In response to your questions to my inquiry regarding Virtual Memory:
[Take Start-> Settings-> Control Panel-> System. On the ‘Advanced’ tab in ‘Performance‘, press [Settings]. On the ‘Advanced’ tab in ‘Virtual memory‘, press [Change]. In the ‘Paging file size for selected drive‘ section, how much is shown for “Space available”? In the ‘Total paging file size for all drives‘ section, what are shown for ‘Recommended’ and ‘Currently allocated’?]
Space available: 670-1344 MB
Recommended: 670 MB
Current Allocated: 672 MB
Hope this makes it to you. Thanks again.
Did you received my response? I scrolled away from my response without sending, but the page jumped. When I returned, all my text had disappeared, so I thought I better ask.
