Windows is running low on memory, Norton Antivirus auto protect may not be able to run.
Posted on 2004-10-09
This is a windows 98SE system. It has 384 megs of RAM. I have tried shutting down all unnecessary programs running in the background using msconfig. System resourses are running 65-85%. The machine runs fine for a period of time and then the "blue screen of death" pops up indicating system memory is running low and norton antivirus auto protect may not be able to run. Sometimes I can press a key and everything continues to run fine but at other times the system freezes when I press a key and I have to completely shut down and restart the computer. Could this problem be originating with Norton antivirus 2002? This problem began after installing AOL 9.0. I have tried uninstalling AOL but the blue screen error eventually comes up anyway. I have run a complete virus scan and also scanned with SpyBot S&D for spyware and removed any found. Virus scan is clean.
