That could be true, Joseph. I have 256 MB RAM, 766 MHZ processor, ample hard drive space, and the swap file on a separate hard drive with oodles of room. Yet there comes a time when I get a message saying my system is low on resources. So you just can't win sometimes. Despite that little bit of an aside, you could try shutting down all other programs, before attempting to open the file. Press CTRL-ALT-DELETE as I described previously and close down as many as you think you don't need. Then empty out your "Temporary Internet Files". After that see if you can get your file to open.
