I have just purchased more RAM for my PC (had 16MB and now running with 48MB) but I still get "low resources" messages.  What are these resources and why didn't the extra RAM help?  I have also connected a ZIP drive to free up some hard drive space (130MB free now) and I have a Pentium 75MHz.

to get more resources you have to remove any software that runs in background.

Can you be more specific?  What are some examples of programs that run in the background?

use if you press ctrl,alt,del keys at the same time and only once you will see list of all programs runing. Antivirus software will always run in background if you see any programs in start up folder they will run in background too. The Microsoft Network upgrade will update your system so you will get more free resources.
