My computer is low on memory message

I'm sorry, but I have yet another technical question. I keep getting a message to say that my laptop is low on memory.

I have googled it and checked the RAM capacity, as shown below, with the error message. It looks as though I have plenty of memory left ... any ideas what the problem is please?

Re: My computer is low on memory message

I would also look in your task manager to see what processes you have running, especially in the background. You can use a logging tool like hijackthis, to capture this information, and then you should find a good, technical forum to post the details.

Also, make sure your anti-virus/anti-malware software is up to date and perform a scan on the most thorough settings. You'll get a lot of false positives, but less will slip through the cracks also.

Re: My computer is low on memory message

Before removing plug in container forever, try this:

Open Firefox

Open Task Mgr (right click bottom toolbar > Start Task Mgr.) Click on Processes (top) > scroll down to Plug in Container, left click (to highlight) and at bottom click End Process. Close Task Mgr.

On Firefox, click Help from top, then About Firefox (bottom of dropdown). If you're not up to date, it will automatically update - current version is 16.0.
Restart Ff. when prompted, then close.

Finally re-start computer and re-open Ff.
