Lets see how light we can get windows xp to run.

Rules.
Close all your programs, that didnt boot when you turn on your computer. Including, aim int he notification area.
Open task manager, go to processes, set it to show the smallest to largest.
Screenshot.

The piece of crap I have had to use for like a month.


If I restarted it, im sure it would be a little less cause some itunes processes started once I opened it and stuff. And my anti virus is still running.

Ill post my moms computer that has 128mb of ram.

No cheating.
Cheating includes,
booting into safe mode,
and I guess it would kinda be cheating to screenshot a newly installed xp.

Annnnndddddd.... anyone can contribute to help eachother on getting it lower. If anyone has any explorer.exe replacements, do share.

I actually can't screenshot my mothers computer because It doesn't have paint... does anyone have another way of doing it? Or maybe I should ask, what is the lightest freeware that can take screenshots.

You don't need paint to take screen shots. Anyway, if you're just lacking an application to paste a screen shot into the n why not just reinstall paint or even gimp.

but my highest Mem Usage before i restarted was 20,604 K

What do you win? Well now you to tell us how you did it. you should make minimem lower the mem size of minimem.

Yo dawg, i heard you like minimem, so i put minimem in your minimem so you can how a low memory while you have a low memory.

no

Also, minimem isn't doing anything, I use it to keep some games and firefox in check. I'll post a screenshot without minimem running.
