  1. "Out of memory at line 56". I am getting this message constantly on my Dell E310. Does anybody know what it means? And maybe how to fix it?

    some unknown script is running at after much processing, the code at
    line 56 has exhausted your pagefile size.

    likely you're running in your browser and have accesses something with some very bad code !

    Yes my sister says it does it when running IE mostly. Would getting some more memory help at all?

    you're missing the point; it's a bad script! not your memory.

    IE allows all kinds of bad junk to run;
    suggest you find/install Spywareblaster and update it.
    add / update your host file via

    empty your cache, delete ALL temporary files (in the browser)

    lastly, try using a better browser like Firefox.

    Yeah, I was going to say that the only time I've had those errors is when my computer was infected with something nasty. You might want to try HiJackThis and attach the log file to your next post in this thread.
