Default VBE window crashes due to Lack of memory?

Hello everyone,
On one particular Access application I have on my computer, I can't seem to access the vbe window anymore.
If I can, It's extremely unstable and ends up invariably crashing at least 10 times within an hour, with a warning message saying my "memory is at a dangerous level", or "no memory", or other memory shortage related issues. It progressively got worse, one day I couldn't enter at all, untill I got rid of waste on my computer. (Did I just answer my question?)
Another application I have, suffers from instability also, but doesn't crash, or offer any error messages why it's doing what it's doing. eg;The Auto List Members & Auto Quick Info doesn't stay up for more than a second, & when writing, letters jump around(long story).
3rd Application which is considerbly smaller than both, so far, has no problems.
Both these troublesome applications, have lots of programming on them, not too much error handling. My computer has maybe 1gig on C drive left, about 4gig on D Drive, & 125 Ram.
Is it a computer problem or Access?
Thank-you in advance!

Are you running any software on the background such as "System Works"? that stuff eats memory.

Make sure you defrag and do all of the nescesary maintenance to your PC, but, I do know that if you are using global variables anywhere youyr apps will behabe the same way.

Do you have any global variables in your app? any in a module? Are you cleaning up your memory programattically?
What is the size of your database?
How long have you been using it?

Thank-you Sal,
It appears I didn't have enough memory in my computer.
Bought a new one & voila, no more crashes, at least due to that.
Thanks again, you brought up some good insights for the future!
