Hello - My computer is acting all creepy and crawly for the last few months, regarding most applications including browser and Word. Based on my review over the course of the last 3.5 minutes on the discussion board, I think I have too many PAGE OUTS open. (Screen shot below). I moved all of the Music files to external drive, and almost NO video, so I am almost positive is not a hard drive space issue. Maybe its a RAM issue. Please advise. Thanks Gregg


P.S. My Page Outs From Activity Monitor > System Memory reads 1.79 GB. Should I try to reduce this, and if so, how? I only need 2-3 programs open 90% of the time (browser, Word and photoshop).
