Norton Utilities & RAM capacity

By mcarmcpnzn ·
Can the Norton Utility Disk Doctor really detect problems on the harddisk? You see, whenever I use it, it tells me that my harddisk is okey. But still I'm having some problems running both the Internet and Windows application.

I have my disk reformatted. I reinstalled the same applications and this time I am wondering why it has already consumed 85% of my RAM. What could be the cause?

What applications are installed on boot? What OS are you using? NDD (disk doctor) does not find a problem with the hdd and you have problems "just" running Windows and Internet Explorer? How much RAM do you have and have you tested the RAM?

If you have Win98, Se, etc. you can go to start --> run and type msconfig in the box. Then do a selective startup and see what is starting up every time you boot your computer (last tab). If you have lots of unnecessary programs, that may very well be why you have very little system resources left.

I suspect that you have a software configuration issue. Have you tried installing part of your programs instead all of them at once? Some of the applications may have memory leaks and thus notrelease memory properly as well.
