Fixing Vista's pesky resource problem
« on: July 27, 2007, 12:41:06 PM »
Ed Bott offers a simple fix for an old problem when Vista runs out of memory. And it works.

Have you experienced any of these problems with Windows Vista? After opening a large number of programs and windows, you try to launch a new program or open a new browser tab or even switch back to an already running program and instead:

  • The window opens but its contents refuse to load.
  • The window opens, but menus are missing, dialog boxes are empty, or buttons don’t work.

Looks like this blog sure is getting some atention. See here for a post about the blog itself.

Looks like this was a breakthrough for everyone, thus it's good to call its atention again.

I've locked the thread to avoid confusion. Please post replies at the other thread ;)

edited due to lack of tact by me :)
