In Windows Explorer, right-click the drive icon and choose Properties. If the amount of free space is under about 10 percent, you’ll need to free up some space. You can use the Disk Cleanup button right next to the free space indicator, or manually move some files to off-line storage, or uninstall unnecessary applications—whatever it takes to get more free space.

Do that. If you have more than 10% free space, then do the next thing it says.

If low drive space isn’t the problem, the virtual-memory settings may be wrong. Right-click My Computer and choose Properties. Click the Advanced tab. Click the Settings button in the Performance panel. Click the Advanced tab in the Performance dialog. Click the Change button in the Virtual memory panel. Whew! This setting is buried quite thoroughly! Look for the System managed size option, select it if it isn’t already selected, and then click *bold*OK, OK, OK.bold That should end the warnings.

why couldnt they just use normal forum coding [b] bold [/b] to get bold

because that’s not how formatting works on this forum, [b] bold [/b] is BBcode, and this forum uses Textile. I think they used it because it made it easier to integrate the forums into the main site, rather than having an external link. Or something like that.

It’s really pretty easy to work out if you look at the formatting help to the right of the text box.
