1) Plug in your joystick.
2) Sit on it.

Swap space isn't big enough. Your C drive is too full to allow
windows to expand it as needed, so try deleting some stuff. Sometimes
just emptying the recycle bin will do it.

Just a 'suggestion': I don't know where you purchased computer; but I got
mine and even after 'telling the salesman' that I did NOT want AOL and/or
Earthlink' buying from a 'company' that says they will build a computer to
your specifications ... when I 'uninstalled' these 2 - apparently helped,
somewhat. Pissed a bit, because when I got the 1st one - it was almost as if
he had gone into warehouse with my 'list of wants' and said, 'well this is
"close enough"; "close enough" is NOT what I had 'contracted for' - but the
phrase "Bait & Switch and Failure to Honor Contract" got it replaced (for a
2nd time - 3d computer is 'fickle' like the "teenage girl" that was referred
to, in a post to you - 'yep...get them 'out of town on Spring Break, with a
lot of booze, and drugs', they will do exactly what VISTA does ...! Anybody
and everybody! Damn, I'm glad I had sons and @ least one of them 'understood
the concept' of 'condoms'; but grandchildren ARE WONDERFUL! It came with 2GB
of memory on computer (with Basic) and ended up putting in 1GB more, after
they loaded (upgraded with VISTA Business). VISTA takes up a 'lot of memory'
just 'doing whatever it is supposed to be doing'. I still show on my PC
checkup through my 'protection' - that I only have 1 star and that it is
'running slow', and this is with 'very little being saved any more - and I do
miss my JOKE folder'; but sooner or later 'they return' or I 'figure out, by
surfing' how to find again. I'll only keep something - such as an email with
a joke until I send it out and get some sort of response, or it is 'no
longer' as 'cute' as it was before. I 'think it is 'sort of akin' to what
'men refer to as "coyote ugly" - was a 10 the night before (but in the
morning - all of us have 'morning breath'), if you want to 'chew your arm
off' - go ahead - it works both ways! At this point, what I 'have prayed
for' hasn't been the 'answer' I've ''gotten" quite often; but learning that
'sometimes "unanswered prayers" end up being best; but 20/20 hindsight has
always been that way. Upgrade ... because VISTA wants to 'keep' Business and
Premium subscribers 'happy' - they aren't concerned about someone who maybe
just 'dabbles' for fun and only uses Basic - I was 'told' this by a Level II
technician; saying they were working on 'corrections/updates, etc. on those
versions and not concerning themselves with Basic'.

That's what in the south is referred to as "holding forth".

Bet in you head, that entire paragraph would be spoken with only one
pause for breath.

Actually 3; but I'm 'waving' - and 'smiling'; "All y'all come back, ya hear?"
Girls Raised in the South and South Ladies Under The Sun (won't give you the
satisfaction of "Tremendous Stress" - from trying to 'get support'); or is it
WINOS? Women In Need Of SUPPORT! "Holding Forth" in some parts of the South
means that a woman can 'do just that' without relying on a man..."Scarlet
O'Hara" was so much 'stronger' than "Rhett Butler" in Gone With the Wind; he
walked 'out on the problem', she just pulled herself up by the bootstraps
(maybe not until "Tomorrow"); dealt with it and moved on! And I 'let my
fingers do the walking'; 'waving' is a flock of 'single-digit puppet finger'
signs! Have a Blessed Day, Shugah!

Memory would not be the issue. That message concerns hard drive space. How
much free space do you have on your hard drive?
