    Not sure if this is a Word (Running MS Office 2007) problem or an XP issue. Open to any suggestions!
    Was using EditPlus2 the other day. Also running Thunderbird, FF and Word. Went to open a Word doc and got the message there wasn't enough memory to open. I've ran AVG, Adaware, Malwarebytes, and IObit. Today I ran Super AntiSpyware. IObit found Trojan-spy.Banker today and removed it. Here's my System Info:

    That was the other day. Does it open and run OK now? Unfortunately, the memory error message is a Windows catchall message and usually means that it has no idea what was wrong.

    Have you cleaned out your temp folder recently? The temp folder should be empty when all applications are closed. They tend to get clogged with abandoned files. So close all apps, then delete everything in your temp folder. Test again.

    Yes, it runs fine now. I delete my temp files every couple days. So I shouldn't be overly concerned about that message?

    Not unless it occurs regularly. Then it will need investigation. I assume that you are now confident you are clear of any malware.

    Truthfully, no, I'm afraid something may be lurking.
