can anyone help me with this problem...below is the exact email i got from my father in law, and i really dont know what to tell him.... Yes for a month now I have been getting that box that says it is increasing the virtual memory. I don't think its actually happening though! I think the memory issue was only related to Outlook Express. My computer must have lots of Memory! I therefore went through some of the sub files you must have seen on the left of the screen below Inbox, Sent etc. and deleted a lot of old "matter" It's working OK now but for how long? My first symptoms of the problem were when I went to Tools / Check Spelling it would not open up, neither would my email address when I clicked on "to".
