System Using Much RAM Memory
When I start and open the system performance monitor (Ctrl + Alt + Del) system displays ´┐ŻAvailable physical memory´┐Ż almost 220Mb (+/- 10) out of 512Mb while there is no any program has been running. Is it normal? How can I check that where the system has been using the memory?

Have 2GB RAM- Recommended Of Virtual Memory?
Hi everyone. I have a Dell 4700 running Windows XP Pro w/ 2GB RAM installed. I run a Penitium 4 (3.4 GHZ, I believe), Nvidea 6600 Graphics Card, Creative Live! 24-Bit Internal sound, Printer, Broadband Internet. I also have 2 user accounts set up (which sometimes run simultaneously) and run alot of the normal programs including Panda Internet Security, Microsoft Office and The Sims2 w/ all expansions (HUGE Memory Hog). My Question is- With these specs, what amount of space should I alot to the Virtual Memory to on my C: Drive? Windows recommended amount or should I increase it some (mainly due to the Sims2? I want a quick boot up of course, but also all the least load and stall time possible. I'm kinda new to this so please be specific.

Computer Is Using A LOT Of Memory - RAM Capacity
I bought my Dell Inspiron 9300 (1.86 Ghz Centrino, 1.0 GB RAM, running Windows XP Media Center Edition [stupid, I know that now]) in August of last year. It was really high-end then, the idea being that by the time I finish college it will still be... enh, adequate.Upon installing Google Toolbar and adding the System Monitor gadget, I discovered that even when I have just turned the thing on it's using over 60% of its memory (RAM). If I am using Yahoo! Widget Engine, that figure jumps to anywhere between 67% and 80%. This is rather unsettling, because the computer has 1 GB of RAM. How can my computer, at rest, be using over 600 MB of RAM? Is there a way I can take that down?

Computer Is Showing Low Video Memory
On the specs for my computer that is attached to the side, it says that my computer has 11 MB allocated as video memory. But, for some reason, when I last looked on my computer it said that I only have 4MB allocated as video memory. Why is this? And is there any way to bring it up, maybbe even past 11MB?

Unable To Boot Without Seeing Blue Screen Showing Lack Of Memory
Im currently in the process of bringing my PC back from the brink. St present I am unable to boot because a system32/hal.dll is not present. Before this I was unable to boot without seeing a blue screen showing a lack of memory. I have been having problems for a few weeks now. At first just a little slow down and the occassional crash, but it has recently escalated to large scale slow down and fatal errors causing the pc to reboot. From the performances menu in Task Manager I can see large large CPU usage peaks with the processor running at 100% consistantly with no programs running. Simil;arly, on startup the PF usage is settled around 200MB but gradually increases over a matter of minutes until it is 2 or 3 GB+. This is usually about when the system declares a fatal error and reboots itself.

The only process that appears to be taking processor power at these points is svchost, that will usually run between 0-1%. I have been aprehensive to end this though as I know it to be a core process. I also had similar problems with lsass.exe. I researched and figured it could be the Welchia Worm or MSBLAST.D virus but have found no trace with any anti virus software. I tried the suggested treatments regardless with no success. A couple of days ago the problems got to the point where no prgrams would open and the system rebooted every few minutes. I managed to rectify this by reinstalling windows, but it appears to have been short lived. Now, after a fatal error the PC has been unable to reboot.

Default Memory Allocated To "system Cache" Is 10MB But Showing Over 1 Gb?
I read somewhere that the default amount of memory allocated to "system cache" is 10MB. However, on my system, it is showing more than 1 gb I'm sure I must be reading it wrong, because there's no way over 1GB of it is being allocated!

Minimising Idle RAM Usage - Save RAM
I'd like to know how to be able to minimise the RAM my system is using to be able to save more ram for games. Anyone have some ideas? I've got 1gig but without anything running I'm sitting at around 300mb of RAM at idle. With Windows XP SP2 Home Edition. By the way why does this forum have such a nice font compared to other sites? I just copied it into Word and it's saying it's Times New Roman but it looks so much better than other sites using Times New Roman.

My Active Directory Domain Is The Same As An Actual Web Domain.
A while back before I knew better I gave a client of mine an active directory domain that ended in .org and did not exist on the internet at the time. Now, I'm discovering in the DNS event log at regular intervals errors about how the computers in the internal domain are unable to register in the DNS server of the web domain of the same name. So, my question is whether there is something I can do to change the Active Directory domain so that I don't get those errors anymore.

They're running Windows 2003 server standard with Active Directory, roaming profiles, routing and remote access for VPN, DHCP server, standard fileserver, and print server. I may have missed one or two things but likely I haven't. The server has itself as the primary DNS server though it's not the 127 address it's the actual IP. The secondary server is the router but I have the DHCP giving out the servers for as options 3 and 4 after the Domain Controller and the router but I had the problem before adding the entries.

Install Won't Go Away / Install Went Into The Actual Install Mode
while trying to fix another problem, by repairing WP on an Averatec 3200, the Install went into the actual install mode, rather than the repair mode. As I don't have the security key (someone who will go un-named, but I have my suspicions, threw away the plastic CD holder with the key taped to the back) I can't continue the install and I can't get the install off the computer. The reason that I was trying to repair is that I have the Log-on Virus which makes it impossible to log on and do anything about the virus. Can't even get to SAFE mode to try to remove the virus with Spyware Doctor.

Double Clicking The Actual File - "windows Cannot Find File File Name.exe"
When double clicking the actual file, Windows reports "windows cannot find file ... <file name.exe>"

This is only SOME exe's. Particularly, older programs. Word, excel, WordPerfect all work. Older apps don't.

I've tried the exe fixes on site and kelly's corner XP fix.
