Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service- PC freezes
Posted on 2006-04-10
I recently installed a new ADSL wireless connection on my laptop, which has always been working well.
Unfortunately, everytime I use the laptop now, within an hour, I receive a message 'Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service', the whole computer freezes, the internet stops loading sites, I cannot use anything else, and opening microsoft word or internet explorer again displays the same message. Basically I am completely stuck, nothing loads- my computer, my documents etc. Even when i click start and shutdown, it doesn't shutdown, it just stays stalling on the desktop.
It is extremely frustrating and annoying, and I have to manually restart the computer and load it up, and it works well for an hour, before the internet explorer stops loading sites, and then the message pops up when I try to reload sites or do anything else.
I'm not sure whether I have a memory leak, as it has worked well before I installed this internet connection, though on some occasions norton system doctor does display a lowering of memory overtime.
I have used Zone Alarm antivirus and Lavasoft to check for viruses and spyware, but has not helped. I don't use NAV- so its not hogging my memory.
I don't understand why my computer suddenly turned up like this. I would appreciate it heaps if anyone could help me in this, it is a very recent problem, only started 2 days ago.
