Not enough memory available for network folders

  Ivor_Monkey 18:51 15 Feb 05

I have a home network comprisng win98 and XP pcs, which has previously worked.

But now I get "Not enough memory available. Quit some programs", when (from win98 pc) i try to open folders/partitions folders on XP machine. I have allowed sharing etc. XP machine can access folders on win98 no problem.

I have few 5? smallish programs running in background and the win98 pc has 128 ram (I know it isn;t a lot, but it worked before)and 75-81% of system resources free. I have 2 HDD with a few partitions in win98. C drive has 10% (2gb) free.

I have run anti virus, spybot etc and hijack this programs etc.

As I said, it used to work.

Any suggestions please?

1) Could it be that I dont have enough spare capacity on HDD?

2) Could somebody remind me of the good test/fix for drive?

3) Is this likely cause? :

could this be a firewall problem? eg zone alarm update has set za as if it was a completly new installation and everything has had to be set to allow again.

Thnaks, but I don't think it is the firewall (sygate) coz I have that installed on both pcs and XP can access folders on win98 pc without any problem and settings seem identical.

I wonder if it might have something to do with size of swap files. I used Norton to optimse windows when space was limited.
I wonder if Norton has caused the problem.

I now have 5gb of free space on hdd, but I still get the message "not enough memory".

Any ideas anyone?

Anyone got any ideas?

I can't print large files.
Scanreg shows fine.
No errors on 128 ram (memtest).

And....Maxtor disks are also shown only as generic in my computer, although bios shows them as Maxtor. Maxtor test program shows disks are good. It looks like a software problem, but what?
