I am on another computer. My desktop seems to have run out of memory I was using AShampoo and the defrag stopped and wouldn't go so I turned the machine off. Now it will load but when I click on desktop items NOTHING happens. Over the day it was ok so I did a system restore to yesterday now it works sometimes. Says I need to increse my virtual memory??? Will not connect to Internet just crashes on me ...... Any help appreciated

boot into safe mode, start>run>type in MSCONFIG,hit enter>startup tab, untick every single entry, >service tab, select hide MS services, untick every single entry now displayed>reboot.

Report back if that gets you to your desktop, and you may also try reducing the amount of harddrive assigned to restore points.

The 1st thing you will have to do is tell us what your computer specs are.

More help will follow after this.

Increase the size of your virtual memory in SYSTEM under the ADVANCED tab in the Control Panel.
