If you're trying to get the most out of your system - especially if it's a few years old - it's critical that you tweak your virtual memory settings.

If you or a program has accidentally moved, renamed, or deleted a DLL, the programs that rely on it will generate a DLL error message.

- Preventing "Program Not Responding" Errors The first step to never having to see a 'Not Responding' error again is to identify which program is causing the issue. Usually, these error messages are caused by a single program. You can tell which program is not responding by the change in the program's title bar, as non-responsive programs will show "(Not Responding)" at the top of the window.

However, there are many services the average user does not need. Each of them takes up resources to work, slowing your computer down. The more unnecessary services you have Started, the slower your computer will work.
