Ok, I have this weird problem that when I try to run 2 programs it starts giving me a not enough memory, but It says that I have 256 mb memory, which is more than the computer I'm on now, and I can run like 10 programs.

I got this cpu from school (for free) I think they might have messed somthing up on it, because I tried to also install the google toolbar and it said I need to have a win98/winME/win2000....etc, type computer, and it has windowsME.

Windows ME (updated)
Pentium 3 866 Processor (or close to it)
256mb ram (it has another samsung 256MB that they have in there that isn't detected, is that fixable?)
8mb intergrated video card (AKA POS)
30gig HD

if you need any more info just ask thanks :-D

See if the swap file is set to a static size.

Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose PERFORMANCE, choose VIRTUAL MEMORY....click LET WINDOWS MANAGE...reboot.
