EXE files

by TheChas In reply to EXE files

Without searching for each of these files to find out what each one belongs to, I have 3 suggestions.

1. I just don't like these program names. I would scan for viruses before doing anything else.
If not viruses, perhaps some of these programs are "spyware" programs. So, run Adaware from Lavasoft to clean out spyware.

2. You say you have plenty of memory.
For Windows 9X/Me, you can have too much memory.
If you have over 511MB of RAM, that may be the problem. This is a known bug in the code, and the only work-around is to disable some RAM.

3. You may have too many "background" applications running.

The errors mentioned with the *.exe may not have anything to do with the Memory errors. I have run into this error several times with MS-Word. Word will not load and after about 5-10 minutes the computer says that there in not enough memory to open this program try closing programs. Using Ctrl-Alt-Del to shut down programs does not help. Closing Word does not help. In order to regain the use of the computer you must force a shut down and reboot. I have removed and reinstalled Word, Office, and Windows without solving the problem. The only solution I have had work is a full format and reloading of the operating system, Word, and Office.

i agree with the other respondent who flagged up the filenames. I've never heard of them, and they don't exist on my Win98SE/Office2K/IE5.5 machine.

Also, when Win9x says it's out of memory, quite often it actually means that it's out of system resources. 95/98 manage resources, such as the GDI stack, differently to NT/2000 machines, and it means that if you're running some graphics or database-intensive apps, the system can keel over through "lack of memory" even though Performance Monitor says you've loads of RAM free.

Sounds like you've got something either in the 'startup' folder which you could temporarily move out, or you have some dodgy things loading up when you start windows... to temporarily take these out to eliminate them, run 'regedit', navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices

and

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

and rename these keys - 'Run' to 'Runt' and 'RunServices' to 'Runservicest'

you should then know what entry is causing the problems. If this dosn't affect the problem, run sysedit, and search through the ini files for the entries.

hope this helps,

Paul.
