I did all you said to do about clicking on the banner, and the only thing I got was:

What's This and

More Information.

I guess because your using a different Browser than IE, that's could be why you get more options than I do.

I was wondering, do you think that I need to totally UNINSTALL XP and reinstall again?? Because although there's no major problems with the system other than what you and rshaffer have helped me with, these glitches' keep popping up, and can be annoying sometimes.

Tell me your thoughts ....

:)

Please continue with the malware topic till the tech has declared your system healthy.
By us doing anything it will cause problems with what they are doing there.
I am following along with the malware topic also so we can wait till they are done with their scans and fixes.

I am here also. I am suspecting malware or some setting within IE.

I tested my last response to you with a active X that gets blocked on my laptop. It works as I indicated. (click on the info bar)
Finish malware 1st and then we can continue.

I KNOW your here with me. :)

The reason I said to rshaffer what I said, is because of what he said:

"GTG will assist you with your future problems". :)

I thought he was going to another Dept. or something and had walked me thru as far as he could.

I understand about getting this malware problem straight. Will talk about the other later.

Thanks !!!

When I said we I speak of us as a whole because we all float between all the forums assisting but 123Runner and myself will monitor this topic as well as watch your malware topic.
We won't leave you waiting... for long.

Guys,

There were two (2) boxes that popped up when playing a game.

1st Box

Playground Skeleton has encountered a problem.

2nd Box

Your system is low on Virtual Memory. Windows is increasing the size of your virtual memory paging file. During this process, memory requests for some applications may be denied.

You are going to get those anytime the memory is used by other programs and you start something that needs more memory then what is free.
The only sure fire way to fix it is to purchase more memory.
512 is just not enough anymore to run windows correctly.

Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system. You do not have to buy the memory from there, but copy and paste the information in your next reply and I will research the memory for you.

Depending on if you have IDE or SATA hd's this page will give you prices for 250 gig to 500 gig. HERE

rshaffer61 is correct. But, please don't buy more than 2Gb Ram, if you're using a 32-Bit operating systems.
For 64-bit, you can purchase 4Gb Ram to 6Gb Ram.
