I am going to agree with Bob but I will raise the stakes. Another
important factor is what else is running. To find out click
<Start><Run>, enter - msconfig - and click <OK>. Select the Startup tab
and look at the list. I have 23 items in my list but I have unchecked
all but three. These programs that are running in the background can
take up memory. If they are in high memory, it should not cause a
problem. If they are in base memory, 640 KB, it does not take many to
In another program, users reported "memory leaks". In almost all cases
it was not caused by one program, it was caused by the combination of
two or more running at the same time. Often the other program was a
crash guard type of program or an anti-virus program. When they turned
these off, the problems ended. Running anti-virus programs while you
are entering from the keyboard will not do any good, and some times the
crash guard programs cause more interruptions than they prevent.
I see nothing in the specs for Caroline's machine that would cause a
problem and I have to assume that it may be the difference between what
she has running vs. what I have running when we are using TMG. In
Windoz I have two identities for myself and they are configured
differently. If I am working on line and downloading, I use the
identity that includes the anti-virus program. For normal situations,
like now, I use the identity that has little else running. It only
takes a moment to log off and log back on but what gets started for each
identity can be important.
