MSCONFIG, Windows Vista and Sony Online Entertainment.

I am a player of the online game Everquest 2. Recently, after an addition by SOE for the game, I started getting the following errors:

"Application has failed memory while requesting _ bytes," followed by bytes available and bytes free, who then would freeze the game software and requires a reboot.

I started my research on the plateau SOE and it turns out it's a long-standing problem (2007) which affects different people at different times. After you send a DXDiag and MSInfo to a TSR SOE, I got this.

"To make sure that you are not all programs running on your taskbar windows task that could use your memory, you should try running your system under a clean boot, because this would prevent you all hidden loading programs."

To turn off background programs:

1. Select the button START.
2. Select RUN, then type "msconfig" (for Vista, type msconfig in the search at the bottom of the Start Menu bar)
3. press OK
4. Select the STARTUP tab.
5. click the DISABLE ALL button.
6 valve apply and then OK. Restart the computer and repeat the game. »

Now I'm here and I have read that it is not always a good idea and can lead to bigger problems.

My questions are:

Is this a good idea?
IF I close everything works in the background I am close my anti-virus full Suite. Of course he uses the memory in the background, so do I stopped him because TSR David told me?
Finally, when we look through the list of MSCONFIG, there are elements of MANY Microsoft Corporation listed on the services tab. I guess the question is what IS supposed to be at all services and the tabs of start-up and advice on how to analyze and distinguish the good from the bad, please.

Suggestions please, if any.

Windows Vista Ultimate 32

Thank you

  • My hard drive went bad so I bought a new. I installed Windows Vista and everything works until I try to install SP1...

    As I said in the title, my hard drive went bad on my Dell XPS 420.  I was running 32 bit windows vista service Pack 2 since the last time my hard drive gone bad.  The first time I replaced my hard drive I used the cd of Windows Vista install with cd drivers and using automatic updates of windows.  In a few hours, I had my pc up and running.  But with this record, it's a completely different story.

    I did the same thing with her.  Installed Windows and drivers as before and I go ahead and do the automatic updates.  Everything is okay until I get to point when I download and install windows Service Pack 1.  I download, install and it seems to work very well.  Then it restarts to complete the installation and configuration.  After about 30 minutes of this, he finally said service pack error.  Restoration of the changes.  He then takes 30 minutes more to do.  After that, I get a screen saying that Windows does not start.  A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.  Follow-up by telling him to use the windows cd repair section.
    I did this 3 or 4 times to do different techniques.  I did it with the automatic windows update.  Manually as an administrator.  After using the analysis tool in Windows Vista and in another way when restore you some files.  I am about to throw my pc because I've probably spent nearly 10 hours of messing around with it and honestly it's not my time unless there is ANOTHER way that deserves to be tried before I "Offices" of the thing.
    Honestly, I think I read every article on this subject online.  If I type in service pack 1 and vista online I went to all the links on the first 10-12 pages...
    If anyone has AN idea please let me know.  Yes, I would like at the office space that it but it would also be good to have another pc with a new hard drive...
    Thank you.

    Hi NoOneSpeciale,

    It is very possible that your CD may be damaged.  Is it possible to get another copy to try on your machine? Or try this copy on another machine to see if it works or not.
    Also check in control panel--> system--> for you Device Manager make sure that there is no yellow/red icon next to the CD player and it's function correctly.

  • Windows Vista and even Windows 07?

    I am trying to download a game, but the system is Windows XP or Windows Vista. Well, I have Windows 07 is Windows Vista and Windows 07 looked at the same thing?

    Hello LittleRed,

    If requirements call for Vista, so general, it should run fine under Windows 7. We are talking about 32-bit or 64-bit here? To be on the safe side, you could try to create a Restore Point before you download and install.

    I have windows vista and somehow my picture turned screen 180 degrees backwards.  How can I fix it?

    Hello FrankHeinsohn,

    Hold down the ALT and CTRL together and then press the left/right/up/down to change the orientation. Press the combination of keys followed by the arrow key to the left first to see if this changes the orientation (you may need to press the selected keys a number of times to get the correct orientation. If the left arrow does not try the right, if this does not work try the high and arrow down.

    Usually, this action solved the problem. If she does not see if you have an icon in the Panel that gives, you go to your video card. Your card might be control NVidia or ATI control panel. Check the tabs until you see an option to change the orientation of the office. Yours, because the cat has his way, is currently portrait, change in landscape mode.
