One of the solutions is to prevent unnecessary applications to run in the background, such as Quick task.

Run this little tool to locate and stop those applications from starting.

Hi Closeup22, buddy

You are right, like 1gb ram now a days is kind of a minimum.
but one thing is he thinks the RAM in the computer might be breaking down and the company that made his computer has gone in liquidation.

Unless you friend has an old Commodore 64 or an old 256 clone with only one memory bar slot which looks like a chocolat bar, ram is ram either DDR, DDR1, DDR2 or DDR3 from any reputable manufacturer will do. Motherboards are usually standard to fit memory in. I suggest you look in the machine's tummy to have a look at the motherboard. That would also be a great occasion to clean the innards with compressed air.

Cheers
