Re: memory
I am not sure I understand what you are saying.
How much memory does your computer have?
What is the size of your paging file?
Do you have a Ready Disk flash drive installed?

Re: memory
You sound a tad confused. hard disk space and system memory are 2 different
things.
Your statement "but still my computer holds way to much memory than my
computer can handle" makes no sense. Start from the beginning with any
problems your having rather than assuming things.

Re: memory
Hi,

If everything is slow, it may be that you have too little memory, not too
much. The more physical memory the better.

As to data and program storage, as long as you retain at least 15% free disk
space, that should not be a concern either.

I suspect rather that your problems stem from too much loading at boot and
running in the background.
