Its only happens when i'm in the web using more than two IE windows or three or more programs...it crashes and everything stop...(and i have to reboot...)......

Do u think i need more Ram (i've 64) or could be an internal windows problem or hardware???

well you do need a lot more ram, but it shouldn't crash because of that, maybe it's just slow...

anyway you can try updating windows and IE if you havent done so lately.

a dying harddrive can also cause problems if virtual memory is accessed a lot. you could use a fixed file for virtual mem to speed things up.

oh, yeah, defrag :)

If you have several diff. brand of RAM in your computer go to your bios and disable read around write, this should solve your problem or try removing one of your ram and see what happens.Dont try to mix diff. brand of ram cause some mobo just dont like it, like mine.

I have 64MB ram too, and I can run 3 IE, winamp, icq, morpheus and outlook at the same time without crashing(ok, it gets very slow). Formatting the hd should help you, but maybe you don't want such a drastic solution. You can reinstall IE, and you can use those Norton Utilities-like programs, that check your registry, the hd integrity, and all this maintenance stuff.

PS: shouldn't this be in the Software Discussion?

well, this cold be caused by differents things, for example, I have Win98 SE running in my main machine with 96 MB Ram, 533Mhz Celeron, and a Maxtor drive, and when I load some webpages that have flash content with sound, it crash my PC instantly!!! yeah, it doesnt matter how much memory or drives, or if there are 20+ programs running at once, it simply stops responding suddenly!!! I have even downloaded the last version of IE directly from the Micrapsoft website, and so with the flash, and never get the problem resolved!!! even changed the sound card and nothing!!!!

NuGgEt: That has nothing to do with your system, AOL is just a lousy browser. Use a standalone browser like IE or Mozilla instead. That way, if it crashes, you don't have to go dial in again. While I'm at it, I'll move this to off-topic software.

IIRC Those browsers use ie's rendering engine anyways (to keep file sizes down among other things) so I doupt that swapping to them would help much.

Thanks for the clearup. I was sure of neoplanet , but I only heard a rumour concerning opera. Either way I'm sticking with Mozilla. On my machine it's quick, stable, no popup windows but has an MDI. But it simply its the business.

jonys,
what i meant was to specify your own virtual memory options. it's in control panel, system, performance, virtual memory.
i'm not sure but if you do that i think windows will use a fixed file

i got a friend who even created a seperate partition just for the virtual memory. he says it's faster because it was on a seperate fat. and since he's not using it for anything else, it doesn't get fragmented.
