is there any way to free up more space? or any browsers better than google chrome i could try get into to download?

The low memory warning is probably referring to RAM, not your hard drive space. Freeing up drive space won't help with this. Nor will a defrag.

It's likely you have too many programs open and your available RAM is being used up.

You could start by closing some of the programs that run when your computer starts.

You can read about this here: And the easiest way to do it is using CCleaner:

Option 2 is add more RAM.

might also be worth checking the virtual memory settings. I have been to the odd job where it was turned off or hopelessly inadequate.

Might also be worth learning how to use punctuation!

Agreed, it was hard reading. OP, repeat what you wrote back to yourself, the way it's written if you read it word for word it would sound like a monotone or a robot. Imagine you are saying it to someone, and when you pause is most likely where you need to insert a comma, and when you stop for a new sentence is where you break with a full stop. :-) You probably sound fine when you talk but may not think about how it looks to someone else reading.
