hi Paul,
   Now I got the message:

The program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down (Mathekernel)

Invalid page fault in module mathedll.dll at 017f:6402ee45

Registers: 
   
Bytes at CS:EIP:
Stack Dump:

My system monitor indicates the unused physical memory is closed to zero and the swap space has just started
to grow. I have lots of swap space though (Windows managing)

thanks

Anthony
