You can try RamBooster2 program. It's free and should be able to clear that memory.

I would make sure you have the latest updates and check your preferences in photoshop. Make sure the hard drive you have room on is selected. And maybe make some memory adjustments.

If that doesn't change it, I would say it's an XP issue. Make sure you have the latest drivers, shut down any programs you're not using with Photoshop open.

Hope that was helpful.

Hi,

even though XP can address 4 GB of RAM, only 2 GB of this is directly addressable by applications, the other 2 is shared with Windows. (More on this at: RAM, Virtual Memory, Pagefile and all that stuff.

Try increasing your permanent swap-file and look at fragmentations on the hd. Or upgrade to 64 bit XP which can address 128 GB! (Windows XP Professional x64 Edition: Top 10 benefits)
