[access-uk] Re: Swap file help please

Hi Christine, either you can do it manually as foolows:
  click on my computer. go to local drive C. go to documents and settings, then 
to the administrator folder, which may be called administrator, or may be 
called your name. In there you'll find a folder called cookies. Select all the 
files with control a and press delete. You'll get a message from windows asking 
you if you want to delete them. Say yes. The only file in there it won't delete 
is index.dat.
  Alternatively, if you let me have your email address I'll send you the 
programme I use to clear my cookies. My email address is 
johncoley@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
                    John.

    Hi Andy, I take it he clears his cookies? If he doesn't over time that will 
slow a system to a crawl.

      Thanks Barry - this was for a friend, his machine has been running very 
slow, as in taking ages to open a web page, or even the control panel, this is 
why I thought the virtual memory thing might be the issue; I had him look 
there, but although swap file by name wasn't there under 
system\advance\performance, vertual memory was, and it had the number 575 
against it, telling us we could extend it to a maximum of 776--not sure about 
these numbers--anyway, it didn't help, perhaps is machine is knackered! -

        Andy,

         

        You'll need to increase your Virtual Memory.  In Control Panel. To set 
these values, click System, click Advanced system settings , and then click 
Settings under Performance.  Typically 1.5 times your installed RAM is the 
number most home-users need.

         

        How much RAM do you have int hat machine?  It may be an idea to upgrade.

         

        Cheers,

        Barry

        Hi all - Can somebody give me some pointers regarding the swap file for 
an XP machine?

         

        A message pops ups saying something about shortage of virtual space or 
memory, and if I recall correctly, this is something to do with the swap file, 
but I don't know where to access it, or what to do with it <smile>

         

        Help appreciated -

         

        Andy
