How much RAM do you have installed? Which version of windows?

I'd suggest that you try not to run stuff unless you need it running. Also, use the classic view if you need to. It might look ugly, but it does help a lot.

It won't allow me to use more than 192 mb of memory. Can I change that? i will try the classic view. I actually like it better anyways. i am running XP but I am on a white macbook

192MB of RAM? Something doesn't seem right. That is the problem right there. It's not enough to run XP.
