Windows 7: Close programs to prevent information loss

02 Jan 2013   #1

OS: Windows 7 - CPU: Intel Core i3, 2330M, 2.2GHz - Memory: 4GB - HD: 500GB - Model: ASUS A54C
Close programs to prevent information loss

Hello all,

First things first, here are the specs:
OS: Windows 7 - CPU: Intel Core i3, 2330M, 2.2GHz - Memory: 4GB - HD: 500GB - Model: ASUS A54C

I've had this computer for 6 months. I initially had TrueCrypt encrypting the whole hard drive. The performance was incredibly slow, so 2 weeks ago, I decrypted the drive and completely restored (formatted) Windows, restoring the 2 original partitions. After the restoration, I re-installed Norton 360, Microsoft Office 2011, Google Chrome, Firefox and Spotify. I have not re-installed TrueCrypt.

The computer is still painfully slow. It often crashes when performing simple tasks like web browsing. I am constantly reciving the following error message:

Close programs to prevent information loss.

Your computer is low on memory. Save your files and close these programs:

Desktop Windows Manager
Asus Live Update
I'd appreciate any advice.

I agree with Britton about scanning your computer's specs and updating them (automatically, just a few clicks needed with that software).

I'd bet the catch is somewhere in RAM. Can you also please post a screenshot of Performance Monitor (open start menu and write "perfmon" (without ") and once it is open take a screenshot of the tab about RAM usage.
