The message could mean that there isn't a sufficient amount of RAM (memory)... not free disk space

Depending on the model of laptop, you may be able to add additional memory.   Since your laptop is running Windows Me, I assume that it's quite old (at least in the computer age context).   However, older laptops may not have user-accessable memory upgrades.

So, forget about the C: drive (that has nothing to do with RAM memory), and tell us the exact model of laptop you have

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

The computer she uses is a compaq presario 1274 laptop.  Hope this helps.

Yeah, that's kinda old....

That Laptop has only 1 user accessible RAM slot, and the largest RAM chip you can get for it is 64Mb (for a total of 96Mb).

I don't mean to be coy, but I wouldn't recommend you put any more money into that laptop...  instead you just need to seriously consider replacing it with something a lot newer.

graye...I appreciate that you helped me with your great advice.  I followed all your suggestions and this worked out so well.  I will just keep the laptop for  games  at whatever game is working.In  the meantime
I will  be  searching for a new laptop.
