What is your Operating system and Service Pack level?

Example: XP SP2 or XP SP3 or Vista SP1, etc.

Physical memory is your RAM (not hard drive capacity). You can do a quick check of Physical memory in the Windows Task manager under the Performance tab. What does it say for Total and Available?

Greetings Clamity,

I am having the same problem, Task manager indacates Total as: 252656 and Available as: 101924, System Cashe: 108740

Before loading - I have run CCleaner and have used the game boster option in advanced system care to shut down, non essential programs.

What can I try next?

Thanks for any advice.
