Specs: Windows XP
I'm having problems with my computer memory. when i go to my computer, properties I have this:
How is this possible? I just can't believe it. I have deleted everything that I possibly could and I have gotten rid of all my music and videos and pictures by transferring them to an external hard drive. How can i solve this problem? i know it's impossible for me to have only that much memory left.

1,0 GB, 250GB hard drive.

Did you empty the recycle bin and the temp files?
Have you run disk clean up in system tools?

If you still can not reclaim disk space back

First off, you are concerned with STORAGE space, not memory. Download Ccleaner Slim from the link below and run the cleaner module.

Hard drives have storage space. You may have actually had low memory as well as low disk space at that time.

If you copy movies to disk the temporary files are not being removed because they are not kept in My computer.

Storage space & memory are 2 completely different things. You listed your memory as 1.0GB - that's reasonably good for an XP system. Your storage space (hard drive) is 250GB. If you've installed or downloaded so much crap that you only have 570MB free space (meaning your hard drive is 99.99% full), there's nothing we can do but to tell you to free up some space - delete, uninstall, move files off the hard drive to an external drive or other media, run a cleaning program such as CCleaner, etc. If you've done all that, you should have considerably more free space, but that still has nothing to do with memory.

If that's not clear, here's a visial:

This is memory

This is storage space

BTW, How much free space do you have since doing the clean up?
