I have 1 Gig of ram but I only have about 350Mb free. How do I free some memory? I am a beginner with computers, so debugging and stuff like that is like speaking Klingon to me. Can someone please help me?

Reboot your computer. Rather than go into a lengthy explanation, here is a link that explains it the same way I do when I am explaining it to someone. Ram Explained . You can also get RAM cleaners, I have not used any for a while, so I can't really vouch for their effectiveness. When I used them years ago, they really did not impress me much.

I've tried rebooting my system. That doesn't work. A friend of mine told me that I may have too many processes running. How do I eliminate some of these processes, and how do I know which of these I need to actually run my system safely?

I suggest you reboot into safe mode, see how much memory is used then and get back to us?

Also what did you install recently or what have you done to the system recently that may have caused this?
