    My memory keeps saying it's too low, can I increase the size and how high?
    It is saying 179mb on virtual memory, I am running Windows xp home edition with 96mb System memory

    Windows XP runs real nice on 512MB DDR Ram, I wouldn't have less than 256 MB to try and run XP. That of course is my opinion .. make sure you let windows manage virtual memory and small little things like that

    Hi debs2411. I agree with snappy_31 that running XP with a memory of 96 mb is too low. To be clear, you can change the size of virtual memory by My Computer - Properties - Advanced - Performance (Setting) - Advanced - Change. Here you could increase your virtual memory or let system manages itself. But the best advice is upgrade your RAM, if you can.
