    Then check your memory just go to the start button the right-click on my computer and hit properties then the general thing will come up. At the bottom of the page it will say computer then it will tell your proccesor an how much mem. you have.

    well I would assume you are talking about HD memory, and not RAM so here goes. There are a few things that you can do to free up memory...
    1) Restart your computer, this should clear your paging file and it will free up a few GB of space
    2) Navigate do Docs and Setting/Username/Local Settings/Temp and /Temporary Internet Files. Delete the contents of both folders (don't delete the folders themselves)
    3) Go to Start/all programs/accessories/system tools/Disk Cleanup. wait for the scan to complete, and once it is done, you will se a prompt...check all of the options, and click over into the "more options" pane...look for the lowest option which says "system restore," select the option to delete all restore points except for the most recent.
    4) Go into your control panel, and change the amount of memory that windows is allowed to use for restore points down to something more reasonable
    congratulations, you probably just freed up several GB of much needed HD space

    btw, if you were talking about RAM, you may just want to get a RAM management program (search the forums for some good options).

    Well he now has 2 tuts on how to check it so which ever one is not enough space he can look at either of em. Also if thats your harddrive mem you seriously need to clean it up or get a new one.

    download norton partition manager (from a torrent site that is). is a very easy to use tool that allows you to resize current partitions and create new ones
