One can not clean out your memory. When windows says ( not enough memory) it realy means your running out of hard drive space. Every Windows (depending on ther version) use's what is called a pagefile. This is a certain amount of non used hard drive space windows must have to function & move data. When that pagefile starts to shrink windows will slow down & send you an error message ( not enough of memory). You need to uninstall any programs you do not need or use. This will free up hard disk space. Only you know what programs you do not need. There are other programs you can download for free that will clean out your PC from un-used files & junk stored throughout the PC.
Run these after you uninstall all non used programs from within windows control panel, Add/Remove programs.
Try this program, not the words Free! Try without buying.

Format your harddrive (using your Operating Systems installation disk on boot), reinstall your Operating System, and upgrade your RAM if less than 512MB.

Good luck.

The purpose of RAM is to allow your CPU faster access to programs. If your CPU had to go to the Hard Drive anytime it wanted a program your computer would run very, very slowly. So for example, when you boot your system up a significant ammount of ram is designated to your devices needed to boot up your operating system video graphics

The primary role of RAM is to copy the operating system in to itself and then load the Operating System so that you can work RAM is only used to run any desktop base applications, such as games, Microsoft Word applications, games such as desktop games and pc games, and browser based so any programs you have loading at start up will be needed by computers RAM

You can download a free ram optimizer from this webpage: http://download.cnet.com/Free-Ram-Optimizer-XP/3000-2086_4-10238479.html?tag=mncol;1

It may take a while to scan and clean your computer, depending on your Hard Drive size.

How to make my pc faster


1 . Clean up your desktop icons. Having too many icons on your desktop slows down your computer's operational speed. Consider cleaning them up to keep only what you need on your desktop.

2 . Remove unnecessary start-up entries. These are programs that start when you turn on your computer, and it takes time for them to load. Programs such as lime wire, Msn, and quick time helper are common culprits.

3 . Run a virus-scan. If you do not have any virus protection software, Then you can download it from the internet

4 . Un install any programs you don't use in Control Panel. Trial software and other junk clogs up your computer and makes it run slowly.

5 . Do a registry scan and repair. Using cleaner of your choice, clean and repair the Windows registry to make your computer run smoother.


6 . Conduct an ad-ware scan. Ad-ware is similar to spy ware and is just as bad. You can also download it from the internet

8 . Upgrade your computer's hardware. The most common upgrade is an upgrade in RAM, but you can also upgrade your graphics card or processor to make your computer run faster.

9 . Make sure all your hardware drivers are up to date. Do this by visiting the manufacturer's websites to download the latest versions.

10 . Turn off unnecessary visual effects such as Vista's Aero effect, all of which slow down your system. Skinning programs such as Windows Blinds also slow down your system.

11 . If all else fails, re-format your computer and install windows again to start off will a clean system with no junk.

12 . De fragment your hard-drives. When your hard drive is reading your files, a little head drops onto to a spinning disk to read the information to load a file. If the file is split up between multiple parts of the hard drive, it takes longer to open each file. Thus, De fragmenting frequently will make every-day activity quicker on your computer.

Hope the above information will help you.
Thanks.

I feel like my computer is running slowly because I need more ram. I was wondering if that was the problem? And where good ideas to buy more would be?


You should try defragging your machine first. That is cheap. Look under start -> accessories -> system -> defragment. This will take a while but it will definintely improve things. You can also try programs like CCleaner to fix your registry (and defrag).

Memory is fairly cheap. Many places have a tool to tell you exactly the memory upgrades that you can perform. Crucial, New Egg, etc. will probe your machine or ask you information about the machine.

You might also want to check to see that your WIndows updates are up to date. You should also check your virus program.
