My, my... Such interest in what's on my task bar.

Do you want me to tell, or is this a game?

What do I win if I get them all right...?

All of the shortcuts on your taskbar consume memory Jak.

Most newer computers have more memory than most of us need, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Unfortunately Phyllis, I'm still in the "dark ages" of the computer world. I've got an old Pentium ll 400 running Win 98. I’ve got about 320 megs of memory but the system can start running a little slow with big graphics files.

I need a new computer.

Ok, here they are, from left to right:

1. Volume control
2. Audio Mixer
3. Printer
4. Winamp (gotta have music - just got the new Springsteen CD)
5. Alarm Clock - so I remember to save my work
6. Sygate Firewall
7. Guidescope - Security & cookie management
8. Post it notes for my desktop
9. AVG antivirus
10. Popup Killer - I hate popups!
11. Call Wave answering machine (dial up on one phone line - gotta have it...!)
12. UD cancer research project - runs in the background
13. Real Player - sometimes I find a neat movie to watch
14. Netscape - not normally there, but I've had some probs with IE lately so I downloaded it last week
15. Dial up networking monitor (WinNT)
16. Mail washer

I really haven't noticed any slowdown or memory problems from all of that. Most of the programs are pretty small though, and I use them all quite a bit so that's why they're there....

Did I win????

Jak it's not so much your memory as your resources. Having each of those load upon starup of your computer instead of when you need them, uses a lot of resources that will eventually wear down your system. You can make a quick launch taskbar addition right down there and drag shortcuts to all those items dirrectly onto it. Then when you want to access them, there right at your mouse's pawtips. Leave the following where they are and disable the others then move them to the other side of the task bar: 1,6,7,9,10,12,15,16. That's half of them and you should check to see if your firewall and avg automatically when you run your brower, then you can remove them as well. Real player is Real system hog if left on the startup.
Just some suggestions. Maybe you could even consider it your prize if it helps your system last longer!!!
