I am receiving an error message stating there is not enough free memory to run a program in Windows. What is wrong and how do I fix it?
When a program is running on your computer, the program needs a certain amount of random access memory (RAM). Sometimes a program will not release the RAM after it has been closed. This can cause your computer to generate an "out of memory" error message. To fix this:
Close some of the programs currently running. Some possible ways to close programs are:
From the File drop-down list, select Exit.
In the system tray:
Right-click the icon of program you would like to stop.
If available, select one of the following: Exit, Quit, Close, Close Window or End.
