MessageActually I think the meter shows the immediate available memory or 
resource. When the meter runs low on start up then there is definitely 
something causing a problem. There is nothing different running then before and 
if it were something wrong with the computer I do not think that it would 
change just because I checked two different versions of Jaws.

  hi, sorry but this does not sound to me like a jaws issue it sounds to me 
like you are having a conflict  between two or more programs that manifests it 
self a little worse when jaws is running.  
  disable any screen saver or active desktop you may have running.  then go 
threw with ms config and see witch start up item is causing the problem.  I am 
using jaws 7 here with no problems what so ever.

    Hey there folks I wonder what Freedom Scientific is doing! I have Jaws 6.2 
and Jaws 7 on my computer. I also have Window Eyes on here. Now Jaws 7 has been 
giving me a headache and was looking around to see if I could find out why. 
Both Window Eyes and Jaws 6.2 show that my CPU Usage is at 100%. Now if I have 
Jaws 7 running my CPU usage is at 84%. Jaws 7 is being a piggy and using memory 
for doing nothing but making the computer run slower. The CPU usage should run 
at 100% or as close to possible at that as it can. 
    Does anyone have any idea why it is necessary for Jaws 7 to tie up computer 
usage?  I can't think of one good reason to do that. I have 512 Dual Data ram 
and windows XP Home with service pack 2. I also have all windows updates.
    The tie up ram causes such things as IE to freeze, windows explorer to have 
to close, plus other strange things to happen.
    Oh by the way I do believe Jaws 7 even thinks it knows when I want to check 
my email! Or at least it thinks it does because the log on screen comes up when 
I am not even at the computer without anything but what is at start up running. 
    One other thing I have noticed is that in Jaws 7 the Jaws program starts 
right when windows does rather than like in earlier versions where the anti 
virus and or firewall plus other programs at start up started first. 
    JAWS uses the symbol of a shark but maybe that should be changed if it is 
going to be hogging memory. Bet you know what symbol I am thinking about!
