    I'm creating a database frontend with 42 forms, 3 modules, and 9 Crystal reports on a Celeron 300 with 64Mb RAM with Win98. My problem is that once I start coding my system resources goes down to about 30%, vb is the only program running I've made sure of that. Is there any way of getting my system resources back to normal?

    Thanks in advance.

    Go to the Microsoft Website and consider downloading Service Pack 4. Other programmers that often write on this website do not like Service Pack 4, and they use Service Pack 3.
    I know that I had the same exact symptoms as you. I would even go down to 0% resources and then crash. I am using Service Pack 4, and I'll swear by it. You may want to investigate before you download it though.

    I'm actually running SP4. The system i'm using is a Toshiba Satellite laptop which I'm upgrading to a Dell PIII 600 laptop 128Mb Ram in the next couple of weeks.
