|What are the exact words of the message you're getting ? If it pops up in a message window, what's the text of the title ? |
Low memory or low disk space messages are a different thing.
Some programs, e.g. AVG 2012, pop up a message about Internet Explorer using a high amount of memory while you're using it. I just ignore that when it's AVG's message, or you could use a different internet browser program, such as FireFox.

How much ram does the computer have ?
(RIGHT click on My Computer, choose Properties - that's shown on the right side of the window that pops up.)
XP just barely runs as it should when the computer has 256 mb of ram, especially when you're using onboard (built into the mboard) video.
Windows will perform a lot better if a faster computer has 512 mb or more; if a slower computer has 1 gb (1,024 mb) or more.
What's the total size of the C partition and how much free space is left on it ?
(Hold your cursor over C, or RIGHT click on C, choose Properties.)
If there's less than 10% free space on that partition, Windows will run slower than it would with more free space - the less free space below about 10%, the slower Windows will run.
