    I keep getting a window which says "Windows-Virtual memory minimum to low. Some progams may not run properly" Is there a way to turn it up. Maybe a download or something.Please help, I'm sick of that window. Thanks, CHris.

    Right click on My Computer, Properties, Advanced, Performance Options, and set it to allow Windows to manage the paging file. If you have too little memory left on the C: drive, that's another reason for the message.

    since the os tell u to allocate more memory to use but you don not have the enough memory in ur harddisk. So you must set the min virtual memory from 200 to max 2000.
    If your ram is below 128MB than i suggest you to buy more ram for your system reliability and performance.
    Please don't close the vittual memory option because it will make your PC slow.

    The smart money is to let Windows manage the virtual memory, than all you have to worry about is making sure there's enough space on the drive with the paging file. :)
