Push and hold the Windows key on keyboard. This is the one with the Microsft windows logo on it.
While holding Win key down click on the Pause\Break key

This should open the System properties window
On this window it will show
System info:

Microsoft Windows: type and version
Service Pack number

Registered Name
Register Number

Computer:
CPU type
Memory
I need all the above info in your next reply Except for Register name and number.
This is private and we don't need to know this information

How much original memory did you have?
You say you added 2 gigs of memory correct?

According to this:

AMD Athlon 64 Processor
3500+
2.21 GHz, 3.00 GB of RAM
Physical Address Extension

You actually have 3 gigs of memory installed. I stopped using ASC a couple of months back and don't recommend it anymore.
Whatever you are using it for can be replaced with other programs that in most cases are better and less resource hogs on your system.
