i just started with a cable modem service (road runner) that uses MS IE as it's web browser.  i keep getting "critically low on memory messages."  however when i try to change the memory (quit IE, highlight it, file, get info) the only sub-menu is "general information."  the window that opens has nothing in it about IE memory.  what's going on...i've got lightning fast service and no memory!  btw, i'm using an iMac, system 8.5.1, with 96 MB ram.  thanks for your help.

I think you are using the "Get Info" command on an alias of the IE program. You need to find the actual application, not an alias, and use the "Get Info" command. It's buried pretty deep in the Internet folder on your hard drive, if nothing else, hit command-f and type in Internet Explorer and it should find the application (name will not be in italics), and you can select it in Sherlock and hit command-I, and change the memory.
