We have finance users who uses the PC intensively i.e. opens 10 large Excel files (avg 2MB each), more than 5  IE windows, run 2 IE and Java base apps, Outlook, Word at the same time.  Frequently they will be unable to open any more new windows e.g. click on PDF file and it will not open until they close off other windows.

The PC is Dell, Intel Core2, 2GB Ram, 160GB HDD free, Win XP Pro w/ SP3, MS Office 2003 w/ SP3, IE7 w/ SP, Norton 360.

I am thinking going to Win XP 64bit may be the answer. Have anyone encountered this to share the solution?
