    "More than enough" means 1 GB? 2? 3? 4? 32? 64?


    And your "machine" is a Commodore 64? Apple II? Mac SE30? Pentium 1?


    Operating System is... Mac OS8.6? Dos 3.0? Unbuntu? Windows Vista? XP?


    Objects being altered are 3D objects? Raster photos? Type? Flat Shapes?



    No one can help at all if you don't provide even the basic information.

    What Scott said. You need to be much more specific. Beyond guessing that this is some Windows 7 with the basic theme, there is not much useful anyone can derive from your screenshots.

    4GB of RAM is the base anymore. Since Illustrator is a 64 bit application, and your running a 64bit OS, you can take advantage of much more RAM.


    That being posted, it's difficult to say if more RAM would help your issue. You still have yet to provide any information on the actual artwork. Again.... no one can help unless you first provide detailed information.

    Every open application uses RAM even if you aren't using the application directly at that time. By closing Photoshop you freed up RAM.
