James ... I think I'm OK on that. I have 512 ram and use RAMpage to watch my usage. A great little program that works on Win98SE and also Windows 2K, possibly XP.
I will post a link here for anyone that never heard of it and would like to try it ... it uses very little resources to run ... Once you get it set up (1 min) it just sits there giving you information. You can see it change as you open and close programs and then maybe "fine tune" or change your settings, if you want. I just have it start when I start my computer, so it's always running. That option is in settings.
RAMpage is a Windows utility that displays the amount of available memory in the System Tray. It can also free memory; by double clicking the tray icon, by setting a threshold that activates the program automatically, or by having it run automatically when a program exits.
* Frees memory automatically, on demand, or after an application finishes running
* Very low active memory footprint, and very low resource and CPU usage
* Can run "hidden", which further reduces memory and resource usage
* Can be run from a batch file, or via a shortcut, to free memory on a "once off" basis
* Easy to install, configure and automate, (click here to see the configuration screen)
When I just opened KM again, I went from 327M to 301M out of 512M
