Is there a simple, or even reasonably simple, way to determine the RAM usage by an individual program? I did a subject search before posting and one member had a RAM problem with PGP 7.1.1, anyway he suspected that was the RAM problem. Recently on boot my W98 seems to hang on the opening tone for several warbling seconds, then the computer has locked-up much more frequently and with fewer resources open than it used to. I have 384Meg of RAM and 10-gig free on an 11-gig HD, and a 550 Celeron. No virtual drives, just physical C: Right now, with only my browser, AV program and Firewall going, I'm down to 54% resources. I hate to start deleting programs from the start menu and reboot after each one, but that's the only way I know to locate the problem.
