I've got a 2 year old HP Pavillion (Pentium 3, W2K, IE6)with 256mb of memory installed. By chance I decided to look at Task Manager and noticed it said I have 260,000K Physical TOTAL Memory and as I type this, only 66,000K memory available. What's up with that? Right now I'm just running IE, Norton Auto Protect, USRobotics V.92 call waiting, and an internet accecelator my ISP offered us to try call Propel Accelerator. My StartUp programs have been weeded down to the bare minimum as well. Are the programs I mentioned hogging my Memory? I've disable them and the memory still shows being very low. I tried PC Pitstop, and it reported back that my PC is in great shape. I passed all tests including memory and internet speeds etc. ANy thoughts?
