I need to increase virtual memory - PC Desktops


Answers :

If you're running Windows XP, and you see a message saying "Your system is\015\012low on virtual memory. Windows is increasing the size of your virtual\015\012memory paging file.". This usually means one of the running application is a badly programmed application, and is absorbing too much memory and is the cause of the problem.
Instead increasing virtual memory paging size, you need to find out what program is giving you troubles, and eventually reinstall it.
Here is how to identify applications using memory in a bad way.
\015\012Here is info on RAM, Virtual Memory,etc.If you did not find any suspect application using a large amount of memory, then try increasing virtual memory paging size

And finally HERE is how to increase virtual memory paging size in Windows XP.

And HERE how to increase virtual memory on Vista.

I don't wish to sound rude but if you don't know how to do this, you prolly should just let windows continue managing it. A few wrong keystrokes can have major repurcussions
