OK, did all of that. Deleted Clean System Memory from Scheduled Tasks and then ran Install_32bit_OS. After awhile Clean System Memory reappeared in Scheduled Tasks with a new 15 min. time and "Could not start" under Status.

Per one of my earlier posts to you where you asked for a screen shot and I was not able to do it. All attempts failed. The computer properties has 7 tabs--General, Computer  Name, Hardware, Advanced, System Restore, Automatic Updates and Remote. Some have sub-tabs. If you are looking for something in particular maybe I could just type it out on a post.

OK, now go to your system32 directory. Cleanmem.exe should be in there, see if it is :wink:

Then the problem is with the task scheduler.

Go into the task scheduler again, right click on cleanmem and go to properties.

Let me know if you get an error.

 No error. A window opened called Clean System Memory with 3 tabs: Task, Schedule and Settings.
We are closing down for tonight. School early AM.

Open the task manager and watch your memory then run it again, does your memory drop like it is suppose to?

Odd, I cant see why it isnt working.

It is in the correct folder, and your getting now errors. Something isn't working correctly with the task scheduler it seems.
