Looks fine to me.

Which program is hanging?

Well I have 1gb and currently I have 539mb free but I have some system tray icons running. It really depends what you are running in the background try starting in safe mode and seeing what is used as firewalls, AV software and more all use the space up.

Adobe premiere elements when it hangs (not responding) memory usage is 500+ which is probably the reason I just wondered if 200 at idle was excessive

Increase your paging file. Set the min and max to a reasonable level.

Adobe loves eating the paging file:-(

How do you do that please

Have you tried using the easiest method and leaving it be when it "hangs" to see if it manages to sort things out. Often I find that bottlenecks in my computers cause programs to stall when they use a lot of power and leaving it 2 or 3 more minutes than normal can often solve it.

Right click my computer > properties > advanced > performance > advanced > virtual memory > change > high light the c drive and pick custom size. Put 1500 in the min and max box. The pick set and ok. click here

You may have to restart the computer.

C of N Ive waited an hour with nowt happeningI am using 500+ when it goes not responding
Ed-o I have 2 drives do I only do C?

If you have the space on the other drive, use that one.

High light that drive and put 1500min and 1500 max.

For the "C" drive tick the no paging file button. So you just have virtual memory on the slave hard drive.
