    Windows 98 has been set up on the C: drive. Examining the drive properties, you discover that installed programs are using 3.7GB of a 4GB partition. The system has a D:partition with 500MB of free space.
    When the user tries to run America Online, he receives an "out of memory" error message.
    Which of the following solutions would be best to resolve the problem?

    A) Right click on my computer icon and examine the performance tab and virtual memory settings.

    B) Right click on the desktop and examine the settings tab.

    C) Propose that the user delete some of the older programs that they don't need.

    D) Re-partition the drive without the extra D: partition

    Answer tommorow :biggrin

    [HIDE]Can't remember if 98 had A.
    B just seems ridiculous
    C is possibly an option
    D is the most likely answer though.

    EDIT: A would be my answer if I could remember weather or not 98 had that tab.[/HIDE]

    [HIDE]I think it should be C or D. I'm leaning towards D, as, being an end user, he's probably got loads of horrible little files that will take ages to delete. But there again, I've concluded I'm not very good at answering these questions :oops: [/HIDE]

    [hide]That's a crafty one Boyce ... I'm going with C - delete some of the programs the user doesn't need [/hide]

    [HIDE]A. This is a memory issue. As you could conceivably increase the swap file with the remaining HDD space, deleting an existing partition is an unnecessary step. Therefore, altering the Virtual Memory settings are what is required. See HERE [/HIDE]

    Ha the best solution isn't there. Uninstall AOL :twisted:

    [HIDE]I presume Boyce is hinting that we should move the swap (page) file to the D drive. You would do this by using the virtual memory setting mentioned in answer *A*

    But I would also recommend that they did C as well, though the question doesn't demand this.

    So just *A*[/HIDE]
