office 2000 memory problems

By rparkforte ·
I am having problems on onw of my workstations. When I try to save a doc, it tells me that there is not enough memory.
I use sytem resource monitor to view memory usage:almost 80% of my cpu+memory is used up from right after i boot up and i don't even have any programs running.
I tryied using ADing FREEAM to free up memory but it doesn't seem to work.
How can I solve this problem?
Please e-mail me if you have answers:

Do a serch on the drive for the file(s) normal.dot and delete it. This file is simply a template and will be recreate when you open word the next time so its safe to delete it.
Sometimes this files gets corrupt and can cause issues like you are seeiing.

Hope this helps

I have just tried this and it did not work.
I do appreciate the fast response, though.
I think it has more to do with windows itself. Are there any other utilities other than FREERAM, that I can use to fix the problem?

Depending on what operating system you are using, try this:

Go to Run and type msconfig

Go to the startup tab

uncheck the items that are not needed (leave the windows system files)

Often when programs are installed, the programs place themselves into memory each time it is booted - even though you don't see them open. You can usually see what has opened during startup by the lower right hand side of the taskbar (next to the time). Everything that has an icon is using up the systemresources every time you boot.

Hope it works!

You say they aren't in your system tray, but sometimes an icon doesn't show in the tray even though it starts up in memory. Did you run the msconfig program to see what was being placed into memory?

I have tried this and it wasn't the sol'n.

Actually, it turns out that my workstation was infected by the NIMDA virus. I have fixed the problem.

This website has good info about the virus and if anyone is interested, check it out.
Thanks to everyone for their input, it is greatly appreciated.
