Hi Everyone,

Today when logging into my internet service I received a warning pop up box from Microsoft Internet Explorer saying "You are currently opeating at 96% of your quota..... Can someone please tell me what this means? What can I do to correct this?

Also received another warning box saying "Virtual Memory Too Low"..... Again, I need to know what this is?

Do these messages mean my computer is going to crash? Oh, I hope not.......

I would be grateful for any help......

Thank you.

hmmmmm.......that is interesting...........new one for me but i can only think of two things that it could be----so first clear your temp files:
f this dosent work (unlikely), then i whould suggest that you do a temp dump, what could possibly be happaning is you are getting so many temp files stored up on your computer that your ram becomes full.

Temp Dump:
tools>internet options>general>under tempory internet files>settings>settings>view files> delete anything in there dont you recongnize, remember that not all temp files are bad, these include favorites, and saved passwords.

if you dont have any saved passwords or favorits then you can do a complete temp dump, but i do not recoment it unless you truly do not care about any of the temp files :whistling: :
Click start then control panel, click network and internet then internet options

On the general tab, click delete cookies, click delete files, include offline content, click clear history.

Click apply after each change.

Click the security tab and click default, click privacy and click default, click programmes and click reset web settings, click advanced to tick, do not save encrypted pages to disc and empty the temporary internet files folder when the browser is closed, click apply

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file, click delete, confirm delete.

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools, to run disc clean up, reboot
try then if you are still getting the same error message then my thougth whould be that you have some malware on your computer that are starting unsesary process and what not. after clearing the temps if you still are having problems Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .
That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.
If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.

hope this is helpful :blink:
