Question for the tech geniuses in my readership (there's gotta be one, somewhere): Since I installed my new security programs and applied the various Windows patches and updates, I'm getting error messages informing me that I don't have enough free memory to run all the applications I like to run at the same time. This is becoming inconvenient. Is there anything to be done about this? I don't know if the hard drive space has anything to do with it, but I'm still less than half-full on the hard drive, maybe a little more than two-thirds. What gives, folks?

ADDENDUM: Well, I just exhibited how long its been since I had any tech training (about nine years now): in computer jargon, "memory" does not equal "storage". Ack. I've learned now that I need to pony up for actual, additional chips to install inside the machine. This I find mildly daunting, as I have never delved inside this particular machine before, but I'll get through it just fine. I'm not that daunted. And hey, while I'm at Circuit City pricing RAM chips I can pick up an employment application.
