My computer specs are the following PII , RAM 114 Win 2000.

Every time i restarted my Win 2000 and try starting a program like quickbooks , WSFTP , Office programs like Outlook , Powerpoint  i get this error Message "to big to fit in memory" .

Every time i restart Windows i get these Dos black boxes appearing with mesages and then windows restarts but a some of the programs .INI file won't start giving me the mesage to big to fit in memory.

I formatted my C: drive and repartition it to NTFS and reloaded win 2000 . It ran smoothly in the beginning but after restarting i got the same problem.

Trie to load SP2 but i t wont let me install it giving me a message this program is not match with your machine win32 ....something like that

What can i do to fix this  ?

Thx

It is either you have less memory or  you are running many applications which the OS is unable to handle

Try increasing the virtual memory and check if that would help
