It is happening with only 1 program open. In your 1st e-mail to me you said that I needed more free space. What could be taking up space? Plus, I suppose I'm a computer illiterate because I don't even understand what the 4236mb total is. Sorry, but I need to know how to free up more space.

With only 247 MB of RAM, you'll always be experiencing such issues. XP needs at least 512 MB and even 1 GB for proper operation. Your computer must be slow as a snail. You'll need to add more RAM.

Please click HERE to download and install HijackThis.

Run it and select Do a system scan and save a logfile from the Main Menu.

The log will be saved in Notepad. Copy and paste the log in your next post.

IMPORTANT: Do not fix anything

Thank you but that doesn't explain why this is the 1st time I've had these problems. I'm talking about having only Comcast homepage up and not even being able to receive videos from there. Logically, it would seem more likely that one of my memory sticks has gone bad. no?

HijackThis would certainly help us diagnose your problem.

However, with 247 MB of RAM, no matter how many times you change your RAM stick, it's still a meagre 247 MB. Surely not enough for XP.

The more programs/updates/devices you add , the more memory it takes to run them. It`s sorta like "The Straw that broke the camels back". With only 247mb , eventually you`ll get to a point where the memory load is too high for anything but small programs that use little memory to run.
Press : CTRL>ALT>DEL to bring up task manager, select : PERFORMANCE, look at PHYSICAL MEMORY> TOTAL and AVAILABLE. What does it say?
