Hi,

I'm running NT 4.0 (P133 64Meg)and Norton System Doctor shows my "CM Free" memory under 3MB. Sometimes its zero. Obviously, I run a lot of apps.

Is this a potential problem? What should I do?

Thanks,

Bernie Orosz

Yes, 64 megs on NT with a number of apps running will run your commited memory to near or at zero. This will not be a problem, (unless your running real-time application, like a monitor for a fire alarm system), AS LONG AS, you have enough space on your hard drive. You did not say how much free space you have on the hard drive.... Make sure you keep a few hundred megs hard drive space free at all times.
