I've found a worse one. It was using about 750000 Ks RAM when the attached error report came on. Then had difficulty with Paint not responding when I went to save the report. (attached)

 

Could there be something wrong with my computer? This stuff has not let up for over 2 months straight. Though I don't recall anything unusual at the location where I used the computer for the preceding 14 months. JPost.com seems about the same with Compatibility View.

Hmm that is looking like a memory problem not being released

Ideally an additional Gb of RAM would clear that but you are looking at around $25 for that

I will see if I can find any software fixes

I did the IE reset. Now IE says Geeks to Go ActiveX controls are out of date! Seems to work ok except for annoying confirmation on downloading desktop favicons. Will baby it along.
