Hi There,
          I hope someone can help me. I have a Pentium 75MHz with 16MEG
of RAM and running Windows 95 Version 4.0. The trouble is when I open AOL
3.0 and logon after about 15 min it gives a Error "Insufficient Memory for
this  Application". And if I try to browser the web through AOL it gives
an error straight away. I thought 16 MEG of RAM would be more than enough
to run AOL.

Please help me.

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
 Chris

Although 16 meg of RAM is said to be enough for Windows 95, I find that 24 is more accurate, especially for internet use.  Upgrading your memory would be your best option, especially now that memory is cheap.  But if that is not an option for you at this point, you can edit the Config.sys file to free more of your memory resources to read the following :

STACKS=64,512
(the maximum stack level allowed)
FILES=60
BUFFERS=40

...and, you should also disable any screen savers and other TSR programs that you might have active and eating up your memory resources.  AOL is heavily graphics intense and where you are constantly loading information from their server, this will suck up your resources quickly.
