Specs: Windows XP, 160GB HD/512MB Ram
recently became unable to attach files to email. within a week or so, began to get stack flow error 116. this morning i deleted hundreds of saved emails. that didn't help. i have maybe 5000 photo's on the hard drive.

i also get "low virtual memory" notifications. i defrag every 6 mo, & can see i have plenty of hard disk space. desktop purchased in jan. '05; new hard drive 10/09 when original began to fail.

thanx so very much for any advice you can give! i'm computer challenged. :)

lacewing, what application are you using to check your email? Have you ever given any thought to just using a gmail or other web based mail account?

Are you using yahoo mail online, or are you using some type of email client that is installed on your desktop, like windows mail?

I think the yahoo web mail you are referring to is based on Zimbra, and Zimbra uses ajax. The error you are receiving is being generated by your browser, and not by the email application itself. I think it is a java error. Are you using internet explorer? If so, I would recommend that you stop using IE all together. It isn't secure, and its fraught bugs. Try downloading, installing, and using Chrome or Firefox.

have considered doing that because ie freezes & slows down constantly, but after reading reviews of athe various browsers, it appeared that ie was the "least worst".
they all appear to have their share of issues. somewhere on the net, i came across a chart that compared the top several. all that did was confuse me more. :o/

lacewing, take it from me, Internet Explorer is garbage. Try Chrome, or Firefox, you will have fewer problems, and you will be more secure.
