    Help! The last few days have been awful. My computer has been experiencing several problems.

    The first is that the internet constantly freezes.
    The second is that I get an error message of "Virtual Memory Too Low"
    The third is I have been getting this error message frequently: dumprep.exe application errror. Application failed to initalize properly 0xc000012d

    Any ideas on how to alleviate some of my problems? Any and all help is welcome!

    Thanks!

    I have windows XP

    Virtual Memory Too Low

    Right Click My Computer and select Properties and select the "Advanced" Tab. Under the Performance heading click settings , Select the "Advanced" Tab and click "Change" OR Press Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System > Advances > Settings >Change

    Your page file should be AT LEAST twice the size of your physical RAM
    It is considered good practice to set the Maximum and Minimum Sizes the same
