I keep getting a "out of system resources" error - mostly when I am in Outlook

I do not have any thing running in the forground and just the spy/virus scans in the background

the only solution is to log out of outlook and sometimes restart the computer, then it will let me do the action I was trying,

I have gone to the GTG and cleaned the malware etc.

I have also asked this in the MS forum but no responces
thanks for your help

mike

Wanabe 1,

Hi

A am using AVG antivirus, Ad-Aware SE, Microsoft Antispyware, Spybot S & D

When I started with you I was using Windows XP firewall, Now I am using Zone Alarm

It appears that when ever I disable the firewall both windows or ZA then I do not get the error!!


I ran the outlook fix like you suggested and then used outlook with Zonealrarm running and I got the error, Since I have disabled ZA no error

Yepper...ZoneAlarm can be a trouble maker. Uninstall that and get yourself a different firewall. OR use the Windows firewall and download Windows Defender Beta from Microsoft. That should take care of your problem.

Completely different animals daniel_c...not the same thing at all. They cover two completely different aspects of protection. A firewall monitors traffic that comes into and goes out of the machine and allows you to contol that. An AV application monitors the scripting and coding in the traffic that you or the firewall allow to come into the machine and looks for malicious code or suspicious activity directed at the registry. The old apples and oranges analogy... :whistling:
