Please be specific. How much ram do you have? What message [exactly] is telling you you are out of memory?

I have a Vestro 200 (Dell)
When I click on Computer I see a visual representation of my "C"
drive which shows me a bar representing my available memory as a blue bar.
When I checked it a few days ago the bar had turned red and showed I only had 12.5 Gb available memory left out of 138 Gb
I went through everything and dumped anything that I did not need which gained me a further 2 Gb I then defragged the "C" drive which gained me another 3Gb and did a directory clean.
I have now got 20.2 Gb free and have run out of idea's
Thank you very much for your interest

You are not running out of memory, you are running out of disk space. A different thing altogether, They both just happen to use the same method of measurement.

Have you run the disk clean-up wizard?
