    All caps is hard to read.

    Looks like you have got a bigger problem than getting memory back. I don't know of any program that will take up any where near that amount of memory. I only have 256mb & I don't need anymore. (not yet anyway) :eek:

    hey ste_w, welcome to xp-erience.org :)

    can u do me a favor? pls dont type in CAPS again, because it looks like your shouting.. ;)

    And I dont think a skin can take up that much ram. Try closing some extra programs in systray.

    you can get Clearmem from M$, it is a program they produced to flush and clean the RAM cache.

    Seriously though no skin, theme or anything should be taking that much RAM space. StyleXP can run with a Zero Foot-Print (using no RAM).
     
  5. Try right clicking on the taskbar and choosing the Task Manager option. This should show which processes are using all the memory. Clicking on Mem usage should sort it by that value.

    I was about to recommend ClearMem. It's cool because it does what it says. As these 312Megs are clearly not needed by a Skin, you should free them using ClearMem. Attention SETI@home-Users: Don't shut down the SETI client before using ClearMem - otherwise you will lose the current data package calculation results (and thus will have to start all over again).
