    As I said, you would zip it. Use something like 7-ZIP, J-ZIP, etc. You can also upload it to something like dropbox, wetransfer, share it, get a link and post the link here.

    I don't know what you did but eventually I get to a .pdf and none of the .zip programs will allow me to Extract it or open it in Adobe Reader.

    Would you upload the .nfo to wetransfer?

    I just took a very quick look and one of the things that could be the cause is that you only have 16.5 GB of free disc space and that's woefully small. It doesn't identify whether it's a hard drive or SSD. If it's a hard drive and as a first crack, run the Disk Cleanup from System Tools. After it does it's first scan, make sure that Temporary Files and Recycle Bin are checkmarked. Let it run and reboot. How much space did you gain? You can do the same thing with an SSD except you would run the Trim function after the reboot.

    16.5gb is still lots of room compared to if it was 16.5mb.

    I agree but it's all relative. Back in the day, programs were sub-mb size and trying to find space on 10 mb drive was a chore.

    Not sure what to make of this. At the time he ran msinfo, it says he has 6 GB installed Physical Memory, 3.12 GB available physical memory and only 771 "MB" of available physical memory. I guess it's saying he's essentially using all his RAM. In addition, his total virtual memory is 5.07 GB. Is that counted in the free space? He only had 1.58 GB of virual memory available and the page file space was 1.95 GB. Maybe one of you experts will weigh in on this.

    Besides Chrome, FreemakeUtils service is one of the most frequent faulting applications in the last month.

    tali1's ram numbers would be higher if had used 64 bit windows instead of using 32 bit windows. I'm using same windows version but 64 bit with 8gig of ram & my numbers are 2+ times higher then tali1's.

    I update when problems restart regularly (as i expected) I have done 2 disk clean ups, they don't make a dramatic difference (didn't expect them tbh) This is some deep corrupt software issue that probably needs Hijack This fiddling wayyy beyond my pay grade

    down load from this link https://crystalmark.info/en/download/#CrystalDiskInfo which is a HDD/SSD utility software which supports a part of USB, Intel RAID and NVMe. I have it on mine with no problem tho it says my tower's ssd health rating is at 84% & my mechanical drive is good. my friend ran that program on his fairly new externall ssd & has a yellow warning which is not good.

    Open up Computer and right click on the C: drive. Select Properties. How much free space do you have?
