Norton Memory test does not work on systems with more than 256MB memory. This problem is caused by systems using Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition and Windows ME with 256MB or more memory.

  • Please type: SYSEDIT and click OK.

  • Please save new configuration by choosing File menu and clicking Save


  • Restart your computer
