Hi, I have a small problem...On my computer I have 14.2 GB's 2.52 of free space, the problem is I don't have that many programs installed. I orginally thought maybe I had something that was eatting the ram and I went though everything you guys suggested about the malware yet, none of that cleaned it out. I was wondering if anyone would have any ideas of what could be eatting all my ram up. I only have two big programs installed which are Norton and Limewire. Yet the PC is still losing ram. I have even unstalled all my stuff to reinstall just what's needed it still won't go up. Please help
Are you sure that isn't a hard drive related problem?

In your taskbar get rid of all Unnecessary items. I know that you can disable limewire from showing on your taskbar after you boot up your pc.
A memory cleaner might help.

If it is disk space, you can go into "my computer", right click on the drive, select properties, then click on disk cleanup and see what it find (I think that is the accurate list to get there, but I normally don't use Windoze, so it might be a bit off). You can select items to remove.
It is also possible that you have backup files from updates, which can be removed, if you are sure you don't want to go back.
There are many things which take up disk space, such as your web browser which caches the data that is downloaded. Email can also take up quite a bit of space. It can be difficult to find. If you are familar with Linux, you can boot with a Knoppix or DSL OS CD and then cd to the dos mount and type "du -sk *", which will give you the size of each file/directory. Then you can take a close look at the larger disk usage.
