WORDFAST - insufficient word memory

I have tried to figure this out for some weeks now, but I cannot solve the problem.
WORDFAST works fine with me, but I still only know the basics. My translation memory is a mess and I have not done any compression job - that is more that I am able to take right now.
The problem is that the system crashes every now and then, due to \"insufficient WORD memory\" (I have WORD 97 on PC, boosted RAM up to 256, does not help). I searched on the net (can\'t get into Yves Champdollion\'s FAQ because of Yahoo). I found that I should increase the WORD memory on normal.dot.
No clue how to do that. It is not well explained. One possibility is going through HKEY something. How and where to find it?
I would be extremely grateful for help. Anyone out there with the same problem?
Many thanks, grand merci
Il existe un groupe wordfast yahoogroup. Ils auront peut-être une réponse. Ta mémoire est-elle extensible?
Je n\'irais pas \"trifouiller\" dans ce genre de fichier hkey base de registres.

I believe Word considers Wordfast as another macro, probably too big for the program if you have a number of macros enabled (in use, whatever).
Sorry Maya if it won\'t help - just trying to provide at least some assistance.
Personally I have Wordfast but have never used it yet.

Maybe you should try and close other programs that are not necessary when working with Wordfast?
I have a similar setup, i.e. 256 MB RAM, and sometimes the system gets slow, although I do not get this error message.

The Wordfast mailing lists are peer-to-peer groups, forums for Wordfast users. Discussions are welcome in the spirit of mutual respect and professionalism. Beside the usual netiquette, the following 2 points should be upheld:
quality over quantity. Write only if and when necessary, avoiding matters unrelated to the group; but don\'t feel too shy to ask obvious questions anyway;
in the \"Subject\" line, put a short description of what the mail is really about, so that people who are not interested do not need to open the mail to find out they\'re not interested. Avoid cryptic subjects like \"Frm Snowy to BigSun: about you-know-what\", use rather \"Cleanup, AR->UR\".
Every post will remind you of the easy, one-step unsubscribe procedure. If your language does not have its own mailing list, you can join the English mailing list, where broken (approximate) English is not a problem.

I found the answer, once I was able to access Yahoo and the Wordfast group again. Here it is, in case you are interested:
\"Have only one glossary (even if that means creating
one from 2 glossaries), rather than disc + QC glo. Uncheck \"search sibling
glossaries\" in Wordfast/Setup/Files,
Terminology recognition is actually what slows down the process. Lower the
maximum number of words in Wordfast/Quality check/Terminology recognition/
\"but < than \" (the default is 12. set it to 5).
Translate in normal view, not page view.\"
I am stil wondering about increasing Word memory. But I am not goint to fool arond with HKEY. I am just not knowledgeable enough.
Anyway, thanks for your help and greetings
Wordfast may be the latest hype, but from what I have seen here, it strikes me as a pretty complicated and complex product.
In addition, I am always a bit worried when \"third-party software\" becomes closely intertwined with other standard software such as WORD - that usually ends in disaster (Trados does some weird things to WORD too).
I much more prefer those \"stand-alone\" programs such as SDLX or DéjàVu; at least, they don\'t interfere with the source program. But I am glad to hear that you worked out your problem .
