Well yes you can. Is your hard drive full almost? I'm talking about Virtual memory that the resources feed off because your ram?
Try cleaning up files and put them on disk to free up space.
If your did all this already and your resources are still low, you have way to many connection going on like USB & 1394 Ports/cams game controllers and more, your system just can't keep up with all this. I know I use to use windows ME
Maybe not your case but I would also recommend
updating your windows here: www.windowsupdate.com
and do a scandisk and defrag of system to speed it up also. Free up any cross links errors on the Hard drive which makes it harder for it to sort out.
More Ram also a must. Will help...
Free Ram program
will help recycle your ram before it uses up your virtual memory. A must try, it will help.
Also check to see if your have any conflicks in your device manger.
You can do this by right clicking on My computer and to properties and to device Manager. If you see any yellow Quotation marks or question marks you have conflicks.
Your not using Compac are you? Worse computers I've have ever worked on
Let me know
