When i try to use Scandisc or Defragmenter i get a msg that there is insufficient memory.
I am running Win 98 2nd edition with an Amd Duron
Cpu with 192 mb of ram whith 63% free. I dont know what the speed is. There is 17.5 Gb unused on
the local Disc.
I have done a "clean boot" via "selective start-up
but on retrying Sdisc. and Dfrag.i get same msg.Can any one advise an old wrinkly who is trying to make the leap from quill pens to CPS. PLEASE.

Hi mule 2

have you tried going to start --> Run and then type in mscongfig and then you can see what programs you have running sometimes things like antivirus software and firewall can cause problems if they are running at the same time

cheers
