I can download the 3 Windows Media Player Critical Udates easily enough ,but when the pc tries to install it just hangs and I get an message telling me to quit some programs because there's not enough memory.

I have 1024MB of ram !

I have closed everthing from the system tray including disconnecting from the net & closing Norton AV & Firewall.

Somethings not right here - what's going on ?

evn closing all the items in sys tray doesnt shut all of it down (assume its Win Xp ???) try running msconfig & selective start option .youve probably got more running than you think. check items against the list of Windows startup at ...drat Ive forgotten its addy .back in a mo!!
