My computer is acting strangely and I am getting out of memory errors at line 46 or whatever line.

There is a website called speedmaxpc.com that has a tool that can be downloaded to fix this problem. Does this really work? It claims to restore files and boost speeds up to 97%.

Thanks,

WC

I haven't used the above software but here's a site with reviews - not good

I found this article on optimizing XP - its quite good - I use a lot of these techniques myself and then you know what is actually being changed on your computer

Another option: which is pretty good as well is to backup your documents/music/pictures and re-install the OS and build it up with the software you want on it and then copy your personal stuff back on to the system.

If you are looking for a software solution - I'd consider getting something from download.com - maybe something applicable with a high rating/lot of reviews from this list

Did you performed memory test using Memtest86+, to perform this test download UBCD (www.ultimatebootcd.com) and run the memory test?

Remembered that I had been badly infected with a virus about a year ago and hadn't used the computer much since then. I am wondering if the virus had reseated itself.

Did some virus checks and supposedly no virus. Cleaned the computer a couple of times with CCcleaner.

Now things are freezing up and going slow. Don't really know what to do right now.

I don't have the original disks for the operating system - Windows XP.

Sorry for the delay in response - another option - to get use out of the pc would be to install a version of linux on it - wiping the disk - if you need to get stuff off of it before you do that you could create a boot cd (linux or ultimate boot cd) - copy your stuff and then reformat the hard drive.

btw some systems don't come with os disks any more - like HP - they put the software to rebuild the system on a partition on the disk drive
