Microsoft Powerpoint Memory problem

by jmar In reply to Microsoft Powerpoint Memo ...

There could be a number of reasons why your system resources drop. It depends on what programs you have running upon start up and what programs you have open when you edit PowerPoint 97 files. Here are some things to check:
-Look in your startup folder (C:\windows\start menu\programs\startup and see if you can remove some of those programs
For example, FindFast is a big culprit of system resources being low. Remove that by going to Control Panel and deleting the drives it indexes first before removing it from the startup.
-Another consumer of resources is antivirus programs.
-Also, if you have Outlook installed, make sure to remove the journal entries that it makes for all your Office 97 programs. To do this go into Outlook and go to Options and unselect all the journal entries for the Office programs.
Good luck!
