my PC is running slow, and tells me there is not enough memory available, I have not put on, anything to take up the said memory, and I have even gone to control panel and deleted everything (printer and photo stuff) that was not relevant, it runs ok for a while, but then starts the same messages "Not enough memory" as if something is running in the back ground, eating up memory.....Help !

What are you trying to do when the message appears, like when printing? Are there any other messages at same time?

Also it might help if you say whether Laptop or Desktop, what O.S. and size of hard-drive with amount of unused space - ie. 100Gb -45Gb available. Amount of RAM?

Open you 'My Computer', you will then see C: drive, right-click on C: drive and this will tell you the drives capacity and how much of it is used/free.

What OS? XP/Vista etc? How much RAM?

If your C: drive is nearly full, then that would through up the 'low on memory' error message - but this is not the only thing - we need to know more, can you answer my questions?
