    Used to work fine, now when printing, saving or spellchecking it says "insufficient memory". I reinstalled, printer works fine with other applications, etc etc

    MS site was oh so helpful

    Any ideas?

    Jeff,

    Clean out your "TEMP" file. This is usually the problem (I've had it before). Many programs cache files here and if it's limits are reached, then if would cause you to have the memory error you're getting.

    Also, you can increase your virtual memory file size if you're hard drive has enough space on it, but that's not really a first move.

    You can try either or both.

    with windows/temp file?

    Or another one?

    I only have 42 files in my temp dir, that's well under the limit
