When I first turn on my computer, my PF usage is at around 152MB with Aim and Winamp both running. By the end of the day, my PF usage is over 200MB! with only Aim and Winamp running. Is there a way for me to get back the memory from other programs after I close them? Also, is there a way to reduce PF usage in general? I remember after I reformat, my PF usage is less than 120 MB with Aim and Winamp running. I have a p3, 900MHZ, 512 SDRAM. My computer is pretty old and I need all the memory I can spare. I am starting to notice a slight lag...maybe time to reformat but I hate to backup all my personnal files. Thanks for any suggestion!
